Staying Engaged Jewishly

This is an unprecedented time and the uncertainty and isolation is difficult for all of us. Here are some resources for helping kids process these sudden changes and stay engaged Jewishly during our time apart.

  • PJ Library has some great ideas for hands-on activities, arts and crafts and cooking projects. 

  • The URJ has five different ways of creating a meaningful Shabbat experience at home.

  • This article by Rabbi Rebecca Rosenthal is particularly helpful in learning how to talk to kids about the uncertainty in the world right now.

  • We now have an amazing resource online for families to practice Hebrew together at home.  Please download these blackline masters and consider reading together for 10 minutes a couple of times a week. 

  • We also have numerous quizlets on the website that will help you maintain your Hebrew.
