What is my blog about? It's about Torah family living. It's about letting Torah affect our daily lives, from mealtime to bedtime, homeschooling to farm chores.

Torah School

I am very excited to announce a resource center especially for homeschoolers desiring to use torah as their base for school. When you click on each torah portion, you will find ideas and links for every subject from art to history to science.  Each idea is drawn from the torah portion.


 I suggest you read the torah portion together on Sabbath, and do any study together then.  During the following week, use some of the ideas to tie the torah into every subject.  Please don't use every idea in one week.  You'll never make it! Just pick the ones that are best suited to your family.  We want you to be able to come back next year and use some of the ideas you didn't use this year.  Also note that some suggestions are definitely for older children.  Keep records with notebooking pages or checklists, etc.

 Beresheet, though not complete, is ready to use.  Noach is also ready to go.  We will continue adding links and ideas over the next few torah cycles. We hope this will be a tremendous blessing to you and your family.  Thank you, Suzanne, for making this wonderful idea a reality.

No thank YOU!! I'm so blessed to have the help. Especially with our upcoming move.

I added a few things to some of the first three portions. I'll try to find crafts, coloring pages, art, etc.. for the first 5 or 6 before our move. That way if there is a break while we get settled there will at least be some of that stuff on there. It's awesome that we seem to have different approaches on what we look for to add to the portion. Give's it a more well rounded approach! :)

Saw this new website a week or so ago. I am very excited about it as we will be incorporating the weekly Torah portion into our school days once we return from The Feast of Tabernacles! Thanks for all for all of the work that you guys are doing to collect the resources for us in one place!
