Home / Building Jewish Life: Death
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.
Death is not an easy subject to talk about. It might be a good idea to have a psychologist come into the class to help talk about death, or have a rabbi come in. It might also be a good idea to let parents know that this topic is going to be discussed, as some children might have a hard time dealing with the subject.
The eight lessons are
- What is a Lifecycle?
- Family as a unit
- Torah Events
- Bar/Bat Mitzvah
- Getting Old
- Teacher Guide
