Jewish U is exactly what every Jewish college student needs.

This best-selling guide to living Jewishly on campus has just been revised and updated. Scott Aaron helps new college students navigate their first year on campus.


You've applied. You've been accepted. You've packed up. And now,
finally, off to college you go, leaving your high school days behind, saying goodbye to your parents, your siblings, and your friends. But, something you shouldn't leave behind is your Judaism.

Jewish U is a hands-on guide to living Jewishly on campus. How to observe your first high holidays away from home. How to decide if you should join a fraternity or sorority. How to find the right place to eat during Passover. How to talk to non-Jewish roommates about Judaism. How to find common ground with Jewish students from different backgrounds. How to find a Jewish home for yourself on campus. College is about diversity, offering up countless options, choices that YOU will now have to make on your own. Jewish U: A Contemporary Guide for the Jewish College Student is an invaluable resource for those about to be presented with these myriad choices.

Alongside the many contemporary resources that he recommends, Scott Aaron incorporates what the Jewish texts have to say about interacting with others, making decisions, and ethical living.

  • The perfect high school graduation gift
  • Practical, user-friendly text
  • Pertinent suggestions of books to read and web sites to visit

My Jewish World: An Early Childhood Music Curriculum (Book/CD set)

Music can be a wonderfully effective teaching tool for preschool aged children. My Jewish World guides teachers through the process of introducing and utilizing song in the classroom to teach Jewish values.

In her comprehensive and easy to follow book, Judy Caplan Ginsburgh includes twenty-six songs, religious and secular, that will help to facilitate an environment of fun and learning. Each song addresses important Jewish concepts and many use Hebrew words and prayers. Judy provides comments, activities, and creative ideas, specific for each song, which can be used in the classroom to learn about being Jewish every day. The importance of saying the Sh'ma each morning, learning the Hebrew words for colors, understanding body parts, and the value of cooperation are only some of the Jewish concepts touched on in the book.

In addition, Judy Ginsburgh includes a list of suggested books for many of the topics. These books help to reinforce and expand the lessons laid out in the curriculum.

With a helpful glossary of Hebrew and Yiddish terms and the companion music CD, My Jewish World is a wonderful guide to making music significant in the Jewish classroom.
