Surviving and Thriving Through Civic and Civil Engagement
The Jewish Education Project
As the 2020 U.S. elections draw to a close, these non-partisan resources will aid in discussion and programming for both educators and families. This collection stands on the shoulders of our Civic Responsibility 2020 selected resources and our Jewish Futures Conference 2017: For Which It Stands, whose recordings are also available on our website.
In a time that has seen increasing amounts of mistrust and unrest, we hope that these resources will help you create a safe and brave space to discuss the election and the feelings that may arise as we fully participate in our democratic process.
Please let us know how you use any of our Civic Education and Engagement in Jewish Education resources and share any recommendations for additional materials with firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are seeking additional resources connected to the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, please visit Resources in Response to the Events at the U.S. Capitol.
