Yiddishkeit 101™ is a new startup company developing affordable homeschool learning aids and games for all ages. Yiddishkeit is the Yiddish word for “Jewishness” — and that is exactly what this company is all about. We aim to assist in the education of Jewish families… especially those who homeschool.
Most articles and lesson plans are free, but a few items are offered here for sale at a reasonable cost, and the rabbinical semikha (ordination) and chazzan certification are offered through a partner (Messianic Jewish Rabbinate) for a fee.
