Tzedek Resource - Ways to talk about global poverty at home - Nov 2015

Book us to train your teachers and madrichim
Tzedek staff will train you and your colleagues to deliver our workshops yourself. That way, you can run them as many times as you like, whenever you like.
You have the freedom to personalise the sessions to your students, whilst we provide the resources and lesson plans.
Cost: No charge if there are 2 or more educators in the session. 

Request Tzedek staff to run a workshop for your class or youth movement
We are thrilled to offer our new Development Dilemmas 2014 -15 package to all schools, synagogues and youth movements.
Aimed at ages 10 up, it consists of eight sessions on different global issues including international trade, food security, and education. 
Cost: A one-off session run by a Tzedek staff member costs £35. This covers some of our costs, and encourages you, we hope, to be trained yourselves to deliver the workshops 

Rent our Smoothie Bike
Tzedek has a Smoothie Bike. Using pedal power you twirl a condenser full of fruit and get an instant  smoothie. Borrow our Smoothie Bike for a summer fair, stall or fun evening. Use it to raise funds and friends for Tzedek. 

What people say about our education work

"It's just been fantastic to have an English based resource pack, not something from USA. The usage of the relevant Hebrew/Torah quotations gives a basis for the topics... they provide useful reading for me to educate myself about developing themes in the festivals which go beyond the basic rituals." Head of Cheder, Southport and District Reform Synagogue, August 2015

Your session was pitched perfectly, the resources were interesting, relevant and the activities were really engaging.” Flora Richards, RS teacher at Aldenham School, February 2014

“Thank you so much for all your efforts and contributions at JFS. We have really appreciated the vibrant way you brought to life the geography that we teach, your thorough research that you have shared with us and your capability to ground this in within the Jewish ethos of the school.” Hannah Sassoon, Geography teacher, JFS

“When evaluating the years programmes with my teenage assistants they all rated the session from Tzedek as the best session they had.” Jacky Martin, HaMakom Headteacher July 2014

“Thank YOU for coming to train our National Executive youth leaders. It was a really interesting, engaging and enriching session for them and for me as well!” Adam Rossano, BBYO Chapters & Community Engagement Director, October 2013
