Resources for Parents and Educators
The unfolding situation in Israel is frightening for children, teachers, and parents. BJE: Builders of Jewish Education is supporting educators and families with immediate tools and training to help children and adults cope, learn and process the crisis. We will continue to update this list of resources for parents and educators. The organizations herein represent a range of perspectives. We encourage you to find and use the information that most resonates with you, your family, or your school. We welcome your input.
