Nourishing Their Souls

One Semester Adolescent Curriculum  

Teacher Training
December 2021

"The NTS materials are outstanding in format, content, and manageability. The lessons are thought provoking, diverse, and address today’s critical issues of Jewish identity."
- Rabbi Michael Pont, Marlboro Jewish Center, NJ
Curriculum Available for Purchase! 
The NTS semester-long curriculum explores how being Jewish informs our
understanding of ourselves, and family, community and what is holy.

The material uses diverse modalities to empower students to think about what it means to have control over their Jewish choices, and navigate the "toolkit" for Jewish connection to which they can return. NTS provides permission and space for students’ curiosity, leaning into exploration of what I don’t yet know, anchoring Jewish engagement as ongoing and evolving.

Effective for 7th through 10th grade classes.
