"Your own story will become a part of Jewish history." With these words, genealogist Arthur Kurzweil introduces the first course of its kind for the religious school: a text, workbook, and time capsule in one package. Students make the book their own by pasting in family photos, favorite recipes, and treasured family stories. There's a place for everything, and the result is a unique chapter of Jewish history for students and their families.
This course in family history naturally lends itself to family learning. As students work to complete each investigative task, they involve parents, grandparents, and other relatives. Students and families complete the book together, creating a priceless family album.
