The Blue Dove Foundation resource library is constantly growing as we create and collect meaningful content to share. As you are engaging with our resource library, please let us know if you see anything that is out of date or that needs to be updated, whether it regards mental health information or Jewish content.
Blue Dove both serves and works with members of all kinds of Jewish communities, from the ultra-Orthodox to the unaffiliated. To be as inclusive as possible and respectful of different communities and traditions, we have decided to spell God as such — with no hyphen in place of the “o.” And much like we avoid using “him” or “her” to describe a person (opting for “them” instead), we agreed to treat God as a gender-neutral term. When quoting a resource or text directly, however, we keep the original terms used by the author.
We hope our resources can be used in a variety of settings with different audiences. We invite you to adapt resources in whichever way meets the needs of the group you are working with. To explore how to adapt our resources, please view our webinar with the Jewish Education Project, where we explore adapting our resources: Through the Portal: Exploring the Connections between Judaism and Mental Health with the Blue Dove Foundation.
