Course Description

Emunah & Tefillah

If your siddur could talk to you, what would it say?

Josh is your ordinary bar mitzvah boy until...his siddur starts to talk!

Watch the Ezra & Lauren Kest Emunah and Tefillah Project, and delve into the most fundamental ideas that form the basis of our emunah in Hashem and transform your understanding of tefillah.

Teachers, please use the classroom presentation found under the "Teacher Materials" tab

Isn’t one of the names of the videos in this course named prophecies revealed?

Can you make another course with people acting out a story to bring out the message of the course? I really enjoyed this…!

When Rabbi Siddur suggested to Josh that he was really in a mental asylum – what’s the point? We can’t trust our mental health? I don’t think this is appropriate for an elementary school audience. This is not the issue they are facing. They are asking if the Torah is real, not if they are in the Matrix or in reality. The video brings it up, and then doesn’t even deal with it satisfactorily. Can those 2 minutes be taken out?

I’m a kid, and I think that part was really funny. I don’t think that they were trying to make a point, just am example.

Well that’s not the point the point is that there’s a good message and there is so that’s the whole point and we kids dont look at it like that.

In “The Power of Prayer” there are two glitches at 7 minutes 20 seconds. The video repeats 3 seconds of material, and then shows a clip of writing saying “teacher materials”.
Also on the graph that shows that Leah was the mother of half the Jewish nation, the other half shows Rachel, which is incorrect. The other half really should be divided up between Rachel, Bilha, and Zilpa.

I’m pretty sure that there is a midrash that says that Binyomin’s sons were included included in Rachel’s children so it’s considered as if she also has half.

Under this course there is a tab with related courses. It seems like the a course power of speech was mislabeled private: speech.

I just love this series! I enjoy watching it with my younger sister, she says she loves it and it’s super super good. Pleasemake more episodes, they are very educational and intresting. Suggestion: My sister has an idea. She says, “How about if Josh meets a Chumash or Navi book, and they talk too?” Love this series!

My 10 year old son really enjoyed this series! He relates to “Josh” very well.
My only regret is that I didn’t realize there was an accompanying Student Workbook to go along with this course. I wish I’d seen and printed that out from the beginning, oh well.
Also, I could be wrong, but the Workbook doesn’t seem to follow the same order of lessons as in the videos… can you fix that?
Thanks!

Hi,
Clarifying question: The video series on the course main page and the videos in the teacher lesson plans seem to be slightly different. What is the main difference and which should I watch/show to my students? Thanks
