GodTalk Podcast from Fifth Graders

May 18, 2022

Fifth graders created a GodTalk podcast!  Educator Jill Stepak facilitated a curriculum created by Steven M. Brown called “Higher and Higher: Making Jewish Prayer a Part of Us”, which offers a comprehensive examination of Jewish prayer and the structure of the Siddur, including analyses of individual prayers. During tefilah, they had a series of discussions that inspired the students to think deeply about their own beliefs, leading to meaningful classroom conversations. Their culminating project is a limited podcast series. Enjoy! Yasher koach to the fifth grade Liberty Bells and Ms. Stepak, who produced the podcast and to Phoebe R, icon art creator.
