Traditional Jewish Texts
In collaboration with Rabbi Jill Jacobs, the Jewish Women's Archive has developed the following traditional Jewish text studies to complement the primary sources and activities found in the Living the Legacy lesson plans.
Each traditional text is paired with suggestions for the lesson plans to which it is most applicable and is followed by a series of questions to encourage students to explore thematic connections between these texts and those primary source texts found in the other parts of the curriculum. With few exceptions, the accompanying questions are general enough to work with any of the listed lesson plans (and likely others as well), and will inspire discussion that brings new layers of meaning to both the traditional text and the lesson plan.
