Apples and Oranges: 
Judaism and the World's Religions (Text Book)

Comparative Religion is a great way to learn about Judaism. It also makes for better citizenship. Rabbi Lieb’s book both clearly explains each of the world’s major religions and shows where Judaism is both similar and different from them. Included is an overview on “what is a religion”, things to remember about Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. There is also a chapter on how to respond to Christian Missionaries.

£10.99

Circle of Jewish Life

The Circle of Jewish Life

  • Empower students to meaningfully participate in the broad range of Jewish lifecycle events.
  • Every chapter includes traditional texts, full scripts of lifecycle ceremonies, art projects, and stories.
  • Focus on diversity of Jewish life, with elements that address adoption, divorce, gay marriage, and mourning.
  • Chapters on lifelong Jewish learning, aging, and conversion push learning about the Jewish lifecycle beyond brit milah, b’nai mitzvah, and weddings.
  • Lifecycle is important because it is a place where our students will encounter Judaism in real life. They will all celebrate weddings, have bar or bat mitzvah, and will face funerals. It is in those moments that the Jewish tradition can be a rich resource and make a difference. In order for that to happen they need two things: (1) They need to know the dance steps. That includes knowing the names, prayers, rituals, and vocabulary associated with a particular lifecycle event. But also (2) they need to have a sense of its meaning, of the values it actualizes, of the way it connects the Eternal to real life experience. The Circle of Jewish Life is the only lifecycle resource that enables both of these.

BJL Red Label: Hanukkah

In the back of BJL Hanukkah we find the read-aloud story, The Return of the JunkyardMenorah or How Judi Learned that it is Important to be Different. In that story, Judi hides the antique family Hannuk-ki-ah so she won’t have to take it to school and explain it to the rest of the class. She doesn’t want to be different. Accidentally, the Hannuk-ki-ah is thrown into the garbage. Eventually, Judi goes to the dump and finds the Hannuk-ki-ah. She cleans it and makes it new—her own private Hanukkah dedication.

£3.99

______________________________________________

BJL Red Label: Purim

“Mattanot le-Evyonim: Purim, with its mitzvah to send presents to the poor, is a perfect chance to make the whole family a part of deciding about and/or sending a portion of our annual charitable, contributions. It is a wonderful time to share some of the things we really care about with our Children.”

£3.99

______________________________________________

BJL Red Label: Passover

The Haggadah tells: “In each generation, every person should feel as though he or she had actually gone out from Egypt.” Throughout BJL Passover, this concept comes to life as seven kids tell us their own stories of what it was like to leave Egypt. Along the way, the 15 steps in the Seder service help us to recreate and remember what it was like to be a slave in Egypt, and what it was like when we were set free.

£3.99

______________________________________________

BJL Red Label: Shabbat

As with other BJL books, every object tells us its story or teaches us its lesson. Shabbat candles teach us about the commandments to “Observe” and “Remember.” Kiddush teaches us how to make things holy. Hallah tells us the story of how Jews collected manna in the wilderness.

Torah Toons Two

Torah Toons II expands into the realm of the commentators and asks questions about language and ethics. Students become partners in the process of rabbinic Torah study. Students discover that the Torah can teach different people different lessons, and that struggling with the Torah’s meaning is something Jewish scholars have done for thousands of years.

Zot Ha-Torah

This is a Torah study geared directly to teachable opportunities found in the bar and bat mitzvah year.
