This chapter presents a crisis intervention model developed in Jewish schools which can be modified & used in most religious settings. A crisis is seen as a “teachable moment” & students can learn how to use ritual, prayer, community, & faith to wrestle with life’s crisis. Religious tradition offers a variety of responses to crisis: social & emotional support, a broader perspective, & hope for the future. The introduction of a crisis-sensitive curriculum is discussed.
