An Elegant Journey: Jewish Teens Encounter Dignity beyond Death
Berman, Rochel Udovitch
Religious Education, v114 n1 p4-16 2019
"The Final Journey: How Judaism Dignifies the Passage" is a trailblazing curriculum developed to teach Jewish death rituals to high school seniors. For the students, it served as a transformative experience. They emerged more reflective, more spiritual, and with a greater sense of the importance of community involvement. The article describes in detail the ten-hour course that features a field trip to a funeral home. Also included are educational challenges, an overview of each session, an in-depth discussion of the impact on students, and a description of the 98-page study guide for teachers.
