The ROOTS curriculum is an invaluable resource for spiritual leaders, mental health professionals, and others who wish to lead a group for those on a fertility journey. Through Jewish texts, group explorations, guided imageries and spiritual experiences, the curriculum provides you with content and methods through which you can offer support and opportunities for healing. Select a holiday or topic, read the corresponding lesson, and tailor it toward your particular group. This curriculum is written as a facilitators guide and explains how to lead the sessions, as well as suggesting materials to have on hand.
We invite you to use the ROOTS curriculum to plant seeds of healing and communal support within your community. If the pricing of our resources poses a barrier to you, we are more than happy to discuss alternative pricing. Please contact Dalia Davis for further information.

"The ROOTS curriculum is an educational resource for anyone who identifies as Jewish (or Jewish affiliate) who is experiencing a fertility journey. It is full of incredible meditations, stories of resilience, and opportunities to build community. I've been able to lead groups utilizing the ROOTS curriculum and highly recommend it to help people experiencing infertility to not just survive, but thrive during this challenging time."
-Rachel Spekman, past ROOTS leader
"Fertility challenges are such a significant reality in many people's lives, yet it often is not spoken about nor are there many safe places for individuals to share their stories. It was so helpful to have the ROOTS curriculum to provide a supportive and thoughtful framework for the group that I facilitated. As a rabbi, I found it really useful to have this curriculum that connected Jewish texts and concepts that supported the group members through conversation and reflection. This material is an excellent resource for any Jewish leader or professional."
-Rabbi Julie Bressler, Temple Beth Shalom (Needham, MA)
