Living the Legacy


Living the Legacy

A Jewish Social Justice Education Project

Living the Legacy (LTL) uses primary sources to explore the roles of American Jews in the Civil Rights and Labor Movements. The 24 lessons that comprise LTL include art projects, text studies, role-playing opportunities, and more, providing new entry points to Jewish identification for young Jews interested in social justice. LTL is designed for use in both formal and informal settings with students in grades 8-12. The materials are flexible and easy to adapt.
