Ways to Practice Tikkun Olam

Posted by on 4/17/2020
Tikkun Olam is the Jewish concept of “repairing the world”, meaning that during the course of our lives we should be working towards creating a better environment and community. This can take a lot of different forms when put to practice. It could be as simple as donating money to a charity or starting a compost pile in your backyard. It could also be as big as volunteering at your local food shelter, or supporting a cause you feel passionately about.

Distance Learning with Marcel Marceau

Posted by Kar-Ben Team on 4/3/2020
In last week’s episode of Unorthodox, Tablet Magazine’s podcast, Jesse Eisenberg spoke about his upcoming role as Marcel Marceau in the film Resistance. Not only was it an interesting conversation, but it also got us thinking about our Picture Book Marcel Marceau: Master of Mime and how we can bring this impactful book to you. Given the demand for lessons and ways to teach Judaism at home, we have created a modified lesson from the book’s eSource guide that teachers or parents can do at home! 
Welcome to Kar-Ben's blog, a place for ideas and activities to inspire, entertain and educate young readers and their families.
