Spark connections to Judaism with our downloadable educational resources.
Using both Rabbi Lawrence Kushner’s and our very own Sarah Lefton’s interpretations of Parshat Bereshit, this four page lesson plan brings together two different videos for class. This curriculum features text study activities, discussion questions, and art activities where students (ages 10 and up) make 3D wire shadow sculptures and a creation calendar.
Are you looking for ways to integrate the arts into your classroom but don’t know where to even begin? In this video, BimBam’s very own Educator-in-Residence Emma Jaszczak, teaches you five easy steps for effectively bringing the arts in your classroom.

From the Jewish holidays to Jewish text, we have a wide variety of discussion guides, source sheets and active learning activities for you! All our educational resources have been co-created and vetted by Jewish educators just like you! While we offer many resources (i.e. source sheets and our videos) free of charge, some of them have a nominal fee to support the work of creating these resources for you! Thank you.
