בעקבות אבותינו

For students who have completed at least through  פרשת וישב

Our אבות ואמהות lived in ארץ ישראל and the very same places where they lived are still very much around today! Let’s travel to באר שבע, חברון, שכם and get a sense of where our אבות ואמהות lived  and what these places are like today!

יהושע ביריחו

We will visit (virtually -of course) the place where the Jews crossed the ירדן and then make our way to יריחו. We will figure out why this was the first city that בני ישראל conquered and where the מרגלים might have hidden out after their espionage mission was complete. We will find out who has lived in יריחו over the last 3000 years, and who lives there now.

דבורה בהר תבור

The places mentioned in the story of דבורה וברק are very real places in Israel today. We will pay a virtual visit and learn how the area helps us understand the story in ספר שופטים a bit better, and what the area is like today.

“WE LOVE ISRAEL”

Israel is such an integral part of the contemporary Jewish experience and in this session we will help the students discover why it is so important to love our homeland.

מלחמות הפלשתים

For the entire length of 'שמואל א' ושמואל ב the Jewish people seem to be at war with the פלשתים. Who is this nation? How did they get here? And what did they really want? By visiting some archaeological sites we might be able to better answer these questions

יבנה המקדש

We eagerly await the rebuilding of the 3rd בית המקדש but in the meantime let’s get acquainted to with the some information about the first two בתי מקדש. We will explore why ירושלים was chosen as the location for the מקדש and what עלייה לרגל might have felt like. We will visit  דרך האבות-the road believed to be the travel route from the south to the מקדש and pay a virtual visit to the הר הבית and try to understand the current status of our most sacred location.

אם אשכחך ירושלים

In this series we will learn about the major events that transpired over the last century and understand how those events shape the world that we live in today.
