Devash: Because Learning Torah is Sweet
The Jewish Education Project
Welcome to Devash, Hadar's brand new weekly parashah magazine that makes learning Torah sweet. By engaging directly with texts and taking kids seriously as Jews, Devash helps children and grownups discover new ideas, values, and sweet morsels in the weekly Torah portion. Devash is designed for kids ages 7 and up to read independently, or together with families and teachers.
This is the Devash collection for the Book of Deuteronomy.
