that are bought along with this item.

The BJL Beginnings series combines the discovery and exploration of Jewish holidays, the Jewish home, synagogue and the family with Hebrew reading readiness in twenty-four full-color student folders and eight parent folders.

BJL: Beginnings is the perfect foundation for the beginning of Jewish learning. Consider it for either kindergarten or first grade. It introduces students to the celebratory aspects of home, family, synagogue and community. It talks about God. It matches each of these celebrations to a Hebrew letter via a key word. In addition, parents are invited into this process through a series of send-home folders that enable family celebration. Teachers will love this material because the folders provide a consistent platform for instruction while allowing for maximum teacher individuality and creativity.

The full-color folders suggest the joy and beauty of Jewish life, inviting student and family involvement and participation.
