אודות הקורס/ About the Course:

Should we teach our students about the Jews in America? Is it relevant to their lives today?

How much do we, as teachers, know about American Jewry?

The course will try to present teachers with appropriate background material on American Jewry, its components and its ties to Israel and Judaism. It will guide them to answer these questions, for themselves and their students.

The course offers teachers different ways of presenting the material to their students in an attempt to expose the students to Jewish life in America from the Jews’ initial immigration until today, deepen their understanding and strengthen their ties to the Jews of the Diaspora.

As a result, the teachers will learn how to develop a project on this topic for the Oral Bagrut, or a mini-project in Junior High School classes, using the wealth of material that they will help to compile. They will then be able to help and guide their students.

מטרות הקורס/Goals of the Course:
