Educators' Catalog of Primary Sources

Primary Sources are immediate, first-hand accounts of a topic or event, from people who had a direct connection with it. It is a valuable and original source of information that gives us a glimpse into the past.

Our primary sources include posters, photographs, documents, maps, music, and other items, that have been specially chosen from our collections by educators for educators. They cover a vast variety of topics such as the Jewish calendar, Jewish history, Zionism, Israel, Jewish values, famous Jewish and Israel personalities, and many more. Each resource includes detailed information, discussion points, teaching suggestions, links, and ideas for creative activities. Discover these primary sources to facilitate meaningful, challenging, and enjoyable learning experiences!
