  • 3-6 - Explore how Yom Ha'atzma'ut started, how we celebrate it, and why it’s important to the Jewish people.
  • 3-6 - Analyze the story of Moses and Aaron confronting Pharaoh, and discuss why justice is important and how to identify injustice.

We're also giving you access to a downloadable Hebrew unit from Shalom, Reader to help students practice decoding skills with a short seder dialogue, games about the Passover seder, blessings, a seder poem, and root practice.

This new release is part of our commitment to help you provide a meaningful learning experience for your students - whether you are back in the classroom, continuing remote learning, or implementing a blended home/school environment. Every few months we have been curating Hebrew and Judaics resources for learners of all ages to get you through this important and difficult time in Jewish education.

In addition, we've also put together are some Guides for Remote Learning for Hebrew and for Judaics with smart tips that can be applied to any of the free resources on this new resource page.

And top it off, we’ve put together a Curriculum Guide to show how three Big Ideas can help you structure a year-long curriculum using these and forthcoming free resources.
