    The JECC has rolled out a NEW program to teach children decoding/reading: Let's Learn Hebrew Side-by-Side. It is geared for 5th and 6th graders, which means delaying decoding from the more normative grades 3 & 4. The website is http://LetsLearnHebrew.org and a one-page overview is here. We'd love to have YOU join the revolution!

    Welcome to the JECC's Curriculum Department Wiki
    Since the 1980s, the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland has been involved in deep curriculum work with its local schools. Written documents developed as a result of intensive work, have always been made available to others at a nominal charge. However, with the help of newer technologies, including this wiki, the JECC is shifting its practice and is making curriculum documents available to other Jewish educators at no charge.

    the Tribe NEW 2012
    HIGH SCHOOL
    We live at a time where the "People" part of "The Jewish People" is a bit weak! This curriculum was developed for young high school students to re-introduce and reinforce the idea of Jewish peoplehood. With lots of hands-on activities, and updated to make use of technology, this popular unit is ready for its next generation of learners. Clevelanders have shared Members of the Tribe for a half-dozen years to eighth graders, with participating congregations joining together for a Shul-In retreat coordinated by the JECC's Retreat Institute. We now share it beyond our city's walls.

    From Hiding to Reviving: The Jews of St. Petersburg
    HIGH SCHOOL
    The Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland adopted St. Petersburg as a sister city in the Former Soviet Union. This particular curriculum opens students’ eyes to the issues that faced our fellow Jews in the USSR under the Communist regime and their current challenges as a community to regain a connection to Judaism and the Jewish people. Moreso, students learn the power of working together as Jews, locally and internationally.

    Jewish Identity Buffet
    In her study of Jewish identity, “Corrections and Journeys” (2000), sociologist Dr. BethamieHorowitzoffers a salad bar metaphor to illustrate how Jews today relate to Judaism. In this activity participants choose “food items” (labeled with Jewish identity descriptors) that match their own current attachment to Judaism. Through personal reflection and small group discussion, “diners” gain a clearer picture of their current Jewish connections. Through analysis of their “food choices” players develop a more-rounded picture of identity issues and an understanding of the philosophical differences between the four major Jewish denominations in North America (Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist).

    JEWISH VALUES
    Shhhhh! NEW 2012
    ELEMENTARY
    Elementary aged children love a good story and "Shhhh" is filled with ones that all include secrets from ancient and modern times. Each of the people and groups shared in this curriculum faced challenges that they could never solve completely, or tackle by themselves. But each of these people mustered up courage, thus embodying the text from Pirke Avot 2:21, “It’s not upon you to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it.” Originally developed for Fourth Grade.
    ...
    One of Judaism’s basic tenets is that we can only reach our fullest potential through social interaction. This unit examines Jewish beliefs, customs, laws and traditions governing the relationship of people to each other. Topics include “Protecting Oneself – Relating to Others,” “Being a Jewish Parent,” “Honoring Parents,” and “Friendship.”
