Lesson plans, printable and digital 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)
We aim to convey content related to Jewish and Israeli history and culture through a variety of primary sources while fostering the following skills:
Observing
Examine the item, think of your first impression, pay attention to details, consider what sparks your interest, speculate where and when this item might be from.
Analyzing
Ask questions and inquire, dig deeper and research, find and organize data, understand the broader context, compare information through interdisciplinary learning.
Connecting
Interact, reflect, think about what resonates with you, forge an emotional connection, find personal relevance, learn together, share insights and hear more points of view.
Creating
Express yourself, crystalize your understanding and add a personal layer to what you have learned, use your interpretation to spark further dialogue and learning.
