Gifts of Meaning for Teachers

Click here for Classroom Projects

We offer meaningful gifts for teachers in Jewish schools. Order one as a special recognition, or enough for all of your teachers, aides or volunteers. Many of the gifts can be personalized with a dedication or have a variety of color or design available so each gift is not identical. We have gifts for small teacher gift budgets as well. Contact us with any questions at 413-624-3204 or phd@ganeydn.com.

Mezuzah Case–V'shinantam l'vanekha

One who teaches another's child Torah...

My original art mezuzah cases, decorated with an insert of an original collage design or a hand-colored dove or geometric design, are made of tough, scratch-resistant plastic. The verse letter "shin" is printed on each one; some have the words "v'shinantam l'vanekha." An adhesive strip on the back will affix the case to metal or wooden doorposts.

Single price 36.00; contact me for quantity pricing.
Kosher scrolls sold separately, 32.00 each.

V'ahavta Flashcards are designed to teach both the meaning and the trope melodies for these verses. It is a downloadable file which you can then print on card stock. The cards each show a symbol that represents the concept of one of the phrases: it faces the student. A folded flap has an English translation with the trope marks from the Hebrew to aid the teacher in singing the verses in English as well as in Hebrew.

This is a way to acquaint them with the trope melodies before the time that they start focused Bar/Bat Mitzvah studies. I used these regularly in a classroom of 5-9-year-olds.
