Does anyone know of any Jewish based curriculum?  I am also interested in finding out about teaching children with ADHD/ADD.

My dd (8 y.o) has ADHD. Is there anything in specific that you want to know about teaching them?

Are you looking for a Messianic or a Conservative/Orthodox approach?  I have a friend that runs a Messianic Jewish homeschool site.  I went and googled "Jewish Homeschool" and several options came up so you might want to start there.  I am sure that there are several curriculum options available for the Jewish faith.  If you want the address of the Messianic site just let me know.

Good luck and GOD's blessings to you, Robin

Not to sound controversial, but the Messianic perspective differs greatly with the Jewish perspective. They are simply not interchangable.

If you are looking for information on Judaism you will want to start with Jewish books. Artscroll has many to choose from. If you are new to Jewish education you may want to start with the Basics...the Stone Edition Chumash with commentary from Rashi is a great start.

I posted an answer to this on another thread as well and I say that the best way to learn Judaism is to live it from an Orthodox perspective in a Jewish neighborhood.

I am not sure what perspective you are coming from, but the WORST thing to do is to try to learn Judaism from another faith or person who does not live it. There is a LOT of misinformation out there, so be very cautious what you accept as a Jewish perspective.

 

Here are a couple of links

http://www.e-chinuch.org/schoolrooms/baismedrash.php3

http://www.bjeny.org/store/default.asp?Category_ID=29

www.artscroll.com

There are no curricula that I know of that can be purchased over the internet. We put together our own. We have no Orthodox day school where we are so the Orthodox are largely homeschooling.

Naomi, I don't think you sounded controversial at all.  You did a splendid job.  I have a great love for the Jewish people and have many, many friends who are Jewish.  Some are believers in Yeshua and others are not.  I love them still the same.

Blessings, Robin

Actually, I was looking for more of the conservative/orthodox type originally because someone else--who was Jewish-- was looking for it. But for myself, I would like more of the Messianic type.

We use a truly non sectarian currriculum from "Oak Meadow". They have a web site you can go to for more info. (oakmeadow.com). Even though we are Christians, I wanted a curriculum that was really unbiased, particularly when it comes to history. I feel we can teach her about our faith on our own. My daughter also has ADHD,and this curriculum works well for kids with this disability because it is very hands-on and easy to implement. I highly recommend it. Good luck! :)

It's worth noting that "Messianic Judaism" is not recognized by authentic Jewish denominations.  A practicing Jew does not worship anyone or anything else but Hashem directly.  As I saw written elsewhere on the web, a Jew worshipping any entity other than Hashem Himself is kind of like being a "Christian without Christ."

Trying to help out Raejay with specific sites for your friend there are many sites to choose from, some below, but for yourself-being a Messianic Jew myself and homeschooling my jewish children-there are actually Messianic Jewish sites available. And Naomi is right about community to raise them in is historically  very encouraging and supportive (and her sites sound great too!), but, also historically in this diaspora sometimes you find yourself alone geographically and as a Messianic we do the best we can, but find others and have fellowship when you can, as Naomi wisely recommended. Remember, it all starts at home anyway( Deut. 6:1-9). Back to topic, do not hesitate to use conservative/orthodox sites as well. We do both. Following the Scripture to directly Glorify HaShem (as Adonai echad) from the heart, learning hebrew, and preserving heritage is what we are looking for. They are more interchangable than people think. In my experience ( and many others) the material desired to be used by Messianics is closer to the conservative/orthodox approach than the Reform/reconstructructionist approach even within rabbinical judaism itself, considering their differences in approach to the Scripture and devotion. YOu still have to basicly bring it together yourself but these sites have been useful for us( and you can "google" messianic jewish homeschool and jewish homeschool and blend from there according how The Ruach moves you), so just a few:

http://behrmanhouse.com/index.shtml

http://www.torahfamily.com/

http://torahtots.com/home.htm

http://ffoz.org/   (they have a children's torah curriculum)

http://www.learningplant.com/

http://www.akhlah.com/

http://www.karben.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index& zenid=b6b5900278971212c350ed43c610233e

http://homeschoolinformation.com/Approaches/heart_of_wisdom. htm(for the latter elementary student and good reading/helps for hebrew roots if you're a gentile)

As for the ADHD/ADD, which one is it? They're two different behaviors. Read up on nutritional deficiencies in the brain, food selection, and herbal and/or homeopathics remedies. That is our path. If it's more ADHD type, your child is probably kinesthetic as their main learning style so incorporate movement and high sensory ways in their learning, and find out their other styles to create balance. In my opinion, it helps not to give the child a label for themselves for it can create a crutch. Don't forget good old-fashioned discipline for learning self-control and ways to fuction in this world, to function in this world, since it doesn't revolve around us! Consistancy and routine are vital. And first before all-PRAY! Adonai will lead you.

Hope this helps and doesn't offend,

Shalom,

Rachel
