Home / Building Jewish Life: Birth
Grades: 3-4 BJL Lifecycle lessons make studying lifecycle moments and practices easier for students to embrace. The eight lessons provide students an opportunity to look at the steps in a Jewish life. They can be used in any order with any starting point. Each unit introduces key vocabulary, basic concepts, and provides a story about each Jewish life cycle event. These lessons unfold eight major lifecycle events. Through stories and hands-on activities, simple explanations and family involvement, students study the moments in life that connect us to Jewish life and God. Families are actively invited to become part of the process.
The birth of a child is a wonderful thing. It is said that when a child is inside the mother the baby learns all the talmud, torah, Jewish values and hebrew that he or she would ever need to know. When the baby is born, an angel touches the baby under the nose and above the lip, creating an indentation. that makes the baby forget all that s/he has learned, and the learning begins again. learning happens all throughout life.
