Life Values and Intimacy Education is a curriculum on sexuality for Orthodox Jewish health from two very well known educators in the field, Dr. Yocheved Debow and Dr. Anna Wruble.
The curriculum combines a theoretical framework that is traditionally based while incorporating internationally accepted guidelines for sexuality education. The curriculum educates students about sexuality, intimacy, communication, human development, interpersonal relationships and values all from within a traditional Jewish perspective. It represents a vision of comprehensive school based education towards healthy decision making, healthy lifestyles and healthy relationships.
This volume consists of 10-15 units per grade ingrates three through five, and 15-20 units per grade for grades six through eight. These scoped and sequenced units can be delivered as part of a comprehensive school-based program in consecutive grades or modular as relevant. The units are designed with significant teacher input in order to ensure ease of use, and they are flexible and adaptable to the needs and educational objectives of any Yeshiva Day school community. Though written primarily for Yeshiva day schools, there is much in the volumes that is relevant for supplementary schools and Jewish education of all denominations.
Drs. Debow and Wruble can be contacted by email, and additional training or support at extra cost.
