I have been exceptionally satisfied with Shabbat Around the World. It fits the niche that we needed: my teachers use the stories and draw from the plentiful lesson plans to meet their learners' needs. The teachers appreciate the opportunity to integrate Judaics, map skills, and cultural studies in their class, and this program adds another dimension to our study of Shabbat. Each unit begins together – the whole third grade sits in one room – as they read the story aloud. The story and supplemental materials provide a wealth of topics for meaningful discussion.

Tami Lehman Wilzig has created a wonderful resource in Shabbat Around the World to help our students learn about different Jewish cultures and customs of Shabbat. This new series will keep our students interested in Shabbat all year long and is a great program for our schools to integrate into their Judaic curriculum.
