Child and Youth Program Curriculum

We are presently developing Curriculum for education on Jewish Divorce practices, including a Mock Jewish Divorce Ceremony.  This Curriculum is for use in Day Schools, Hebrew Schools, Synagogue Programming,

Youth Movements and Summer Camps. Geared toward varying age groups, our Curriculum focuses on helping children, youth, and teenagers have a better understanding of how Judaism addresses divorce. From what a Jewish Divorce Ceremony looks like, to how Jewish Principles and Values and Jewish texts apply to contemporary divorce. Our Curriculum will add Jewish knowledge to the toolkit of youth to help support them through experiences with separation and divorce within their own family and within their wider community.
