Topic: Explore the unique stories in each participant family and compare the common threads that tie all Jewish families together.
Target Audience: This program works best for families with children in second, third or fourth grade.
Time Frame: The entire program takes two hours. This includes 1 hour and 15 minutes of parents and children together and 45 minutes with a separate parent study session while children decorate family megillah cases.
Staff: The program has been done successfully with as few as 30 participants, up to 150 participants. An experienced facilitator can do the parent and child piece alone, even with a large group. Additional staff will be needed for the break-out sessions.
A-to-Z directions start with publicity hints and staff preparation three weeks prior to the actual program.
Creative ways to fund this program: These materials are completely reusable, so ask your educator or rabbi to pay for the workshop. The entire program is personalized with your site’s name, making you guys look grrrreat! Do you have an enthusiastic family or willing grandparents? Ask them to be an “angel” donor and we’ll personalize the program with their name too.
