Celebrating Shabbat in Many Ways
The Jewish Education Project
Shabbat is a 25-hour period of rest lasting from just before sunset on Friday evening until nightfall on Saturday. The idea is to take a break from ordinary life, and focus on family, community, and spiritual growth.
This collection features resources that can be used to plan Shabbat experiences around a particular theme as well as materials for teaching about Shabbat in general.
These Shabbat blessings, created by Gateways' experienced special education teachers, are Illustrated with Tobii Dynavox Picture Communication Symbols®. Illustrating each word with a symbol helps to make these blessings more accessible and understandable for pre-readers and students with disabilities. Students can use these printouts to follow along with the blessing, learn how to recite the blessing, and learn the blessing’s meaning.
