This page provides free curricular resources for Jewish day schools, religious schools, camps, youth groups, and adult education organizations. There are lesson plans about Jewish languages, Yiddish, and Jewish English, and there are videos and teachers' guides about Jewish Neo-Aramaic and Judeo-Median languages of Iran. More resources will be added in the coming years. If you have ideas for other resources that would be useful, or if you'd like to contribute curricular materials, please get in touch.

The Jewish Language Project is piloting a 9-lesson mix-and-match curriculum for Jewish schools, grades 4-9:
Beyond the Family Tree: Jewish History and Diversity Through Family Languages and Names

This DEI-focused unit provides an alternative to the Ashkenormative orientation of many Jewish educational institutions. It introduces students to the diversity of Jews around the world, past and present, and enables them to see themselves as part of that mosaic.

Contact us for more information or to become a pilot school.
