We have been appreciating the wealth of information found on this website. We are modifying material for 2nd - 5th graders for children's church in a non-rotational setting. I recently reached out to a couple of inter-faith families to ask for their help in teaching Hava Nagila, the hora, and/or the dreidel game as a culminating activity to this "unit". Interestingly, they had a different reaction than I foresaw. In the Jewish tradition, age 12 is the time a young person prepares for his Bar Mitzvah or her Bat Mitzvah. This is an important time of study. While our intent was to share what else Jesus could have been doing (because a lot happens in a church all week long), that message did not translate initially. It appeared that we were missing the intensity of a young person's commitment to this meaningful and momentous rite. We have clarified our intent, and our understanding has increased, but I write in hopes of raising awareness in case we can save similar confusion for others. It is our shared hope, I know, to be inclusive and to celebrate all. Again, thank you for the support!
