Synopsis: 

A concise review of the curriculum “Life Values and Intimacy Education: Health Education for the Jewish School,”  developed by Yocheved Debow and Anna Woloski-Wruble.  The scope of the course extends far beyond mere “sex education” to include “life values,” only a portion of which relate to sexuality.  The curriculum has been field-tested at various schools in grade levels four through seven and adjusted, based on the varied reactions of boys and girls.  The reviewer deems this to be a finely tuned and tested, comprehensive curriculum on issues of life values, sexuality, and self-image.
