Our mission is to foster a paradigm-shift in spiritual and moral education, towards an experiential pedagogy that transforms students with its clarity and relevance to their daily lives. Our approach appeals to Jews of all backgrounds (Conservative, Humanist, Orthodox, Reconstructionist, Reform, etc.) and non-Jews too.
Books — The demand for our books and other educational materials has not cooled. Here’s a sample of the feedback that we regularly receive:
The Art of Amazement has resonated very well with me as its contents are directed at a number of principles I have already sought to incorporate into my life, and by citing Judaism as one of the greatest ways of achieving these goals it does a great deal to ease my hesitation in becoming a more connected Jew.

Indeed, the only thing that keeps us from doubling or trebling our distribution is funding. Your contribution will help us reach more young people.
BestJewishKidsBooks.com — This website is dedicated to helping parents find the best Jewish literature. Please see our new section of suggested Bar and Bas Mitzvah presents.
Teacher’s Resource Site — We are creating an online library of ready-made curricula for Jewish teachers of all stripes.
Love Your Neighbor — This pilot program to connect community members with residents of senior facilities is expanding in Baltimore as we build a model for national replication. Even at this stage we are not able to meet the demand.
These programs (indeed, all of our programs) have a common denominator: that participants should be inspired and empowered to seek further learning opportunities, to forge a warm, lasting connection to a spiritual or ethical community and to lead ethical, fulfilling lives that contribute to Tikkun Olam.
