Jewish Values & Woodworking

A tie to the past

Woodworking is a tremendous medium for many kinds

of learners because it is kinetic, tactile, and organic.

No two projects are alike just as we are each different.

We offer you this guide for you to use woodworking in

the service of instilling Jewish values into our youth.

You can choose a Jewish value to use as a lens into

woodworking, create Jewish themed projects, and

create programming around holiday themes that use

Woodworking as a learning aid.
