The LaHaV curriculum takes a bold departure from traditional modes of Talmud and Tanakh instruction, and has pioneered an approach to communicate the richness and relevance of our tradition by weaving together a rich tapestry of rabbinic texts and ideas. Yet we’re not just transforming Judaic studies for our own students. We’ve created a groundbreaking digital curriculum app that serves as the basis of a fully connected network of Jewish educators who share training, resources and methodologies in order to improve Jewish education across the world. We’ve developed this curriculum from the ground up, tested it in all grades and levels at Shalhevet High School in Los Angeles, CA, and are currently working with schools across the US, Israel, and Australia to implement it across a wide range of classrooms and student demographics.
