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.
