Learn & Play

Teaching resources and ready-to-use activities

Learning is a value that is rooted deep in Jewish culture, a meaningful process of discovery and growth that combines knowledge and skills, that can be achieved in a variety of ways.

We aim to convey content related to Jewish and Israeli history and culture through a variety of primary sources (such as: manuscripts, photographs,ephemera, recordings) while fostering the following skills:

“A person can learn only from a place that their heart desires”
- Babylonian Talmud, Avodah Zara 19a
