[Guides for the National Observance of Children's Sabbaths: Christian, Catholic, and Jewish Guides.]
Children's Defense Fund, Washington, DC.
These three booklets were designed to help Christian, Catholic, and Jewish congregations and parishes participate in the National Observance of Children's Sabbaths on October 16-18, 1992. During the Children's Sabbath, religious services and programs focus on the needs of children and ways in which the religious community can help meet those needs. Each booklet in the set is geared toward a different faith: "A Little Child Shall Lead Us. A Christian Guide"; "Our Banavikh, Our Bonayikh. A Jewish Guide"; and "Hear Their Cry. A Catholic Guide." Booklets contain sections on: (1) suggestions for organizing, including ideas for promotion, newsletter inserts, and news releases; (2) suggestions and resources for the worship service; (3) activity suggestions for children, adults, and individuals of all ages; (4) follow-up activities for education, service, and advocacy; and (5) background information in the areas of maternal and child health, early childhood development, and family poverty. Appendixes in each booklet provide lists of organizations and resources for child advocacy. (MM)
