The following is the introduction to the unit on the value of Teaching your Children.
Passover is the ultimate Jewish family story-time when we gather and experientially tell the story of the Exodus. It can be overwhelming as we ask ourselves: “How do I communicate our Jewish story to my children, in a way in which they will own it and become part of it?” In this session, we will look at some of the strategies from our tradition on how to communicate the value and joy of Judaism to our children. Using the Seder as a model, we will focus on the importance of setting up special times to create family memories, creating an atmosphere where questions and questioning are expected and welcome, and understanding our children as individuals and treating them in the way that best suits their own personalities.
The Year of Growth book enriches the Momentum year-long journey. Most Partner Organizations build on Year of Growth resources to deepen group learning. Mothers use the book to share learning with friends and family and to bring the learning back to their children.
Year of Growth is given in Israel to all Momentum trip participants in English, Russian, Spanish, or Hebrew as of 2020.
