Birdrachov, the elementary school division of the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation, has kicked off the Konei Olam year by sending out 4,000 curriculum passports.
“It’s amazing how this program really engages children by taking them along on a journey with their own passports,” said Rabbi Shea Steinberg, a school liaison for Bidrachov.
Geared for 2nd and 3rd grade, Konei Olam is an innovative middos program that uses fun and excitement to help students internalize fundamental middos. The program takes the students on an exciting worldwide adventure with Yoni! They join him as he traverses the world and experiences the sights and sounds of eight fascinating countries in his quest to acquire good middos. When they complete their journey at the end of the year, they have a personal passport packed with beautiful pictures of each sight – and precious middos to apply to their lives.
The program focuses on the following eight middos: זריזות, אמת, חסד, סבלנות, נושא בעול, שמח בחלקו, כבוד הורים ומורים, הכרת הטוב.
The program includes daily lessons, theme-based scenarios, questions, activities, take-home contests and practical application. In addition, it has an incentive program with student passports, weekly stickers and monthly prizes. All incentives are provided by the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation.
The Konei Olam program is available in English and Yiddish and starts on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvon.
