Teaching for Spirituality
I work with parents, religious school teachers, and camp counselors to infuse Jewish content learning with wonder and awe and by connecting with the great Mystery we call God, Ha’Shem, the Holy One of Blessing.
We might meditate on the letters in the Aleph-Bet, the Hebrew alphabet, as well as draw them, pose as them, learn to decode them and to find them in the words of Jewish prayers.
We might look at the oft-repeated words in the siddur, the prayer book, such as kadosh/holy or baruch/blessed and share our reactions to them and the meanings they hold for us, as well as find them in the siddur.
We might discover the parallels in our own lives to those of our ancestors’ through poetic writing and song.
These are just a few of the myriad ways I teach for spirituality.
