As Jewish educators, we are accustomed to teaching Israel tough the lenses of history, politics, geography, and food. In this course, we will discover new ways to explore Israel with students - by integrating Israel into holiday education. We will expose tie-ins between the major.
At the conclusion of each course, participants will be able to:
- Jewish holidays and contemporary Israel education, and will develop best practices for using experiential education methods in order to build connections between our learners and Israeli culture and society.
- Recognize, assess and create opportunities throughout the year to add Israel content to holiday programming Compare and describe the differences between American and Israeli celebrations of Jewish holidays
- Implement experiential education programs and opportunities to teach Israel through the lens of holidays
