The most comprehensive teacher guide (131 pages) I've seen on Jewish history, ethnicity and religion. Glad to have it downloadable on Share My Lesson.

Not all the information is true. I stopped reading when I saw the part about who is Jewish. A Jew is only Jewish if his/her mother is a Jew or if he/she converts. It is incorrect that if a person's father is Jewish or if they consider themselves Jewish then they are Jewish.

This is true for Orthodox Jews- not for Reform. Reform believe if either parent is Jewish then so is the child.
