Yay to the fair trade element!
Elizheva Hurvich

I have a suggestion-- here's an amazing site of an art-inspired "I have a dream speech"

Can you say more about MLK resources?
Ramona
47:28
Do you know the book As Good as Anybody
Ramona
47:42
It is about MLK and Rabbi Joshua Abraham Heshel
Alison Westermann
47:56
Love that book Ramona!
646 472 5328
47:58
Yes, I know that one.
Alison Westermann
48:06
And Martin's Big Words can be connected to the holiday too
Ramona
48:08
There is a teacher's guide. Not a PJ library book - but a great MLK resource
Rabbi Cara Weinstein Rosenthal
48:27
As Good as Anybody: Martin Luther King and Abraham Joshua Heschel's Amazing March Toward Freedom by Richard Michelson
Cory
48:36
Any specific ideas for kids age 1-5? I liked the shared fruit idea with the different exteriors and interiors. This is Cory from Foundation School
Elizheva Hurvich
48:37
... maybe Chicken Sunday, by Patricia Poloco, which is about an Abrican American family and a Jewish family who are neighbors and exchange holiday traditions
Ramona
49:12
Chicken Sunday is great too!

I've led a little "Music Together" type seder for family's with tots. I've sung songs, served fruit. With each fruit, I've asked PARENTS questions about parenting-- How do you parent with a SHELL? Or are there times when you need more boundaries or protection? Or do you need to loosen your "peel?"
Ramona
51:43
I have a resource for a young child "Outside Me/Inside Me art - happy to share. It connects to B'tzelem Elohim
Elizheva Hurvich
52:28
Parents share while they eat fruits with peels. Then we have fruits with cores-- what is at the core of your parenting? When do you need to be soft on the outside but have a core? WHen are your boundaries fluid? Also, we do a mayim dance, and sing happy birthday to the world. We've done a "stone soup" type of imaginary cake making-- what ingredients will people put in??
Alison Westermann
52:44
Oh that's really beautiful Elizheva
Sarah Rabin Spira
53:08
Please also try to avoid using fruit for "art" that isn't then eaten. Avoiding food waste as much as possible would underscore the lesson of food justice.
Elizheva Hurvich
53:47
We have made "edible rainbows" using fruit and then tasting it! What does red taste like? What does yellow taste like? Brachot!

We do a day of service for young kids every year for MLK day and this year because of Tu Bishvat we are incorporating a gleaning project to donate food to Salvation Army
Alison Westermann
55:57
We're doing a day of service after my conversation with someone else about it! Portland was our inspiration.
Cory
55:57
Thank you!! ~ Cory

We have also shown The Lorax for Hebrew Schools-- super engaging. Not Jewish, but absolutely on point!
Alison Westermann
56:23
ShopNStock for a LGBTQI+ center, then a story time with activities following the stocking.
Alison Westermann
56:55
I'm trying to build a relationship between the Jewish communty and the LGBTQI+ community, because we definitely overlap already.
Ramona
57:19
What is ShopNStock?
Melissa Werbow
57:25
I should mention that we are in Florida - so there is lots of produce in our garden!
Alison Westermann
58:09
We're going to shop at a grocery store (PJ is providing family "teams" with gift cards for $20 each, they're getting clues on items to buy and they can always add more) and then go to the food pantry to stock the food pantry
Alison Westermann
58:43
And that's not it!
Alison Westermann
58:50
After that we're having a Drag Queen Storytime :)
Elizheva Hurvich
59:28
Hi! How does the Drag Queen fit in???
Ramona
01:02:01
This year we are having one of our moms, who happens to be a legislator in the Virgina House, talk to our older kids about the social justice issues that are being debated, discussed and legislated. Hopefully bringing some concrete issues to abstract discussions.
Ramona
