Professional Development

Using Video Testimony of Israel’s Founding Generation
March 15, 1:30 – 2:45 PM EST, Free of Charge
Join us for a conversation with Aryeh Halivni, Founder and Executive Director of Toldot Yisrael (an organization documenting Israel’s 1948 generation), and Naomi Schrager, Director of Education of Lookstein Virtual Jewish Academy, where we will explore an incredibly rich resource for teaching about Israel. In this session, you will learn pedagogical tools for using video testimony in varied educational settings, and consider an approach for making Jewish history come alive for students. This is a great opportunity for enhancing your Yom Ha’Atzmaut programming.
