La-Bri'ut: To Our Health and Wellness - A Curriculum for Kindergarten through Sixth Grade


Source: The Jewish Education Center of Cleveland 


The Jewish Education Center of Cleveland is pleased to offer an exciting, new values-based curriculum designed for learners in kindergarten through sixth grade. Via five values-focused modules each five weeks long, learners experience synchronous learning in a weekly cohort-based mifgash (“gathering”). Off-line/at-home they delve into module-related content and concepts - lower elementary age children explore them through a curated box of hands-on activities, while upper elementary learners receive engaging weekly challenges.

Learning is anchored in Jewish texts and tales of our past, offering rich understandings of Jewish values that build resiliency and guide personal and communal health and wellness:

  • sukkat shalom (a shelter of peace)
  • ometz lev (inner strength)
  • g’vurah (courage)
  • k’hillah (community)
  • hesed (loving kindness, tying into hope)

While developed with minimal at-home adult responsibility for learning, resources are offered to encourage informal family conversations.

With thanks to the generous support of The Jewish Education Center of Cleveland and The Covenant Foundation, all is available for free download.
