In response to the emerging health crisis of childhood obesity, The Afikim Foundation has taken a leading role in educating parents, teachers and students about how to practically implement strategies for healthy living. La’Briyut is a dynamic in-school program that focuses on three core areas: Stress-reduction, nutrition and exercise. Community lectures promote awareness and an interactive online La’Briyut version is now in development.
La’Briyut’s Companion Jewish Curriculum
The Afikim Foundation has created a companion series of Jewish source materials for study and discussion that parallel the La’Briyut content. Each of the resource pieces contain a sampling of classic Jewish sources related to the topic, “Lessons Learned” and offer practical tips for putting the lessons into practice.
