Shalom! My name is Judy Rich, and I’m the creator of

My husband and I planted a Messianic congregation in the fall of 2015, and when we did, we realized what a huge void there was in the way of quality, engaging, theologically-sound Messianic children’s curriculum. As a mom of five, and now with a congregation full of children, this was really important to me.

And so I began writing curriculum for our own congregation to use. In January of 2020 I established as a way to release my work as a resource for congregations all over the United States. My first project was the Crossroads Messianic B’nei Mitzvah Program, for teens and pre-teens, which also sells on Amazon.

The children’s program I’ve developed is called Kingdom Kids, which is comprised of three years of weekly lessons (the first year, Adventures in the Torah available now, with the second year, Adventures in the Tanack, in development and the third year, Adventures in the Gospels slated for 2025 release) and a multi-level Hebrew program. This comprehensive children’s Shabbat School curriculum incorporates lessons from Scripture, character traits, Hebrew, Scripture memory, and liturgical prayers. My inspiration for this was the amazing AWANA program that many Christian churches offer, and my deep desire to offer something for Messianic kids that is engaging, multi-layered, and truly teaches them to understand and love God’s word. It will eventually also have an achievement system built in, with lanyards that kids can wear and hold the achievement pins they collect for participating in class, memorizing Scripture, and learning Hebrew. Stay tuned as new developments are always in the works!
