The Journey to the Mizrah curriculum was created for formal and informal Jewish, and non-Jewish, education institutions utilizing traditional Sephardic pedagogy, which creates space for every single student regardless of background, identity, and/or experience. Designed and written for middle schools, but easily adapted for high schools, the Journey to the Mizrah curriculum includes twelve lesson plans that incorporate text study, discussion, and immersive Sephardic and Mizrahi activities such as Mimouna, Piyutim, Henna, and storytelling.
