HEAConnect Curriculum

On this page, you will find many different curricula for your small group to learn through. We hope that you begin with the Ask Big Questions series, but there are many more opportunities to learn through the wonderful resources below. This page is evolving, and we intend to continue to add to the resources below.


Ask Big Questions
Ask Big Questions is an initiative of Hillel International as a way to bring the energy of students to a new kind of conversation about life’s Big Questions. What began as student conversations quickly morphed into something bigger when they realized this model would work for diverse participants in every stage of life, not just students.  Big Question conversations support and strengthen civic habits of listening, civility, and engaging diverse perspectives, which are important steps toward better problem solving.

Death Over Dinner

This adventure began when we learned that 75% of Americans want to die at home, yet only 25% of them do. When we learned that how we end our lives is the most important and costly conversation America is not having. And when we realized that a conversation among loved ones, friends, and even strangers could begin to change these numbers, and bring the conversation about death back into mainstream culture.
