A new series of textbooks set to revolutionize the teaching of overall knowledge of Judaism, including general information or yedios klaliyos, and geared to elementary yeshivos, is finding excited devotees among educators and parents in orthodox communities worldwide.
The Yahadus books are a project of Living Lessons, an educational organization that, according to Rabbi Sholom Binyomin Ginsberg, educational director, a musmach of Telshe Yeshiva and mechanech (educator) for over 30 years, “is a grass-roots effort to prepare and market top-quality Judaic Curriculum materials. Benefiting from the best and latest educational theories and approaches, yet without compromising our rich Mesorah (tradition), a group of caring and dedicated individuals have undertaken the monumental task of preparing detailed curricula to make Judaic subjects engaging, meaningful and exciting to learn and teach.
“The first result of this effort is a state-of-the-art Yahadus curriculum, designed and created by a team of Mechanchim and Mechanchos, Rabbonim, researchers, writers and designers.
“The name Living Lessons was chosen in connection with the overall goal of this effort – to prepare our children with the lessons of the Torah, providing them with the tools, knowledge and desire to live their lives as Torah Jews.”
