Explorer Topics

Fairness & Kindness: Sharing our good fortune fairly with others makes the world a more compassionate and equitable place. Design a family tzedakah box, a powerful tool for teaching that with privilege comes responsibility. 

Making and Taking Off Masks: How do we find the audacity to stand up for what is right? Make a Purim mask that will help you to be brave, and celebrate your courage with song and stories!

Passing the Scroll: Telling family stories of overcoming hardship are the most powerful way to teach our children resilience. Inscribe your own stories side-by-side with those of your ancestors in an edible Torah!

This program made possible through a grant from PJ Library

Sign up here to receive the gift of Jewish bedtime stories and songs each month – at no cost to your family!
