Integrating Israel Into Holiday Programming

As Jewish educators, we are accustomed to teaching Israel through 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 Jewish holidays and contemporary Israel education, and will develop best practices for using experiential education methods to build connections between our learners and Israeli culture and society.
