Product description

Grades: 4-7    Circle of Jewish LIfe contains texts and activities. It enters areas where you need to go, ones you’ve never had a resource for before conversion, adoption, divorce, the meaning of growing old, and more. The book is rich in Jewish texts, stories, and opportunities to learn the Jewish lifecycle's vocabulary and enter into its concepts. Make meaning out of the Jewish Life cycle! 

The Circle of Jewish Life

  • Empower students to participate meaningfully in the broad range of Jewish lifecycle events. 
  • Every chapter includes traditional texts, complete scripts of lifecycle ceremonies, art projects, and stories.
  • Focus on the diversity of Jewish life, with elements that address adoption, divorce, gay marriage, and mourning.
  • Chapters on lifelong Jewish learning, aging, and conversion expand the understanding of the Jewish lifecycle beyond Brit milah, b’nai mitzvah, and weddings.

Understanding Jewish Lifecycle events is essential because this is where we encounter Judaism in real life—celebrating weddings, having a bar or bat mitzvah, and facing funerals. In those moments, the Jewish tradition can be a rich resource and make a difference. For that to happen, they need two things: (1) They need to know the dance steps. That includes understanding the names, prayers, rituals, and vocabulary associated with a particular lifecycle event. However, (2) they also need to understand its meaning, the values it actualizes, and the way it connects the Eternal to real-life experience. The Circle of Jewish Life is the only lifecycle resource enabling both.
