Plato taught, “The best way to learn how to do something
new is by doing it.” In Experiencing the Jewish Holidays students don’t just learn about the Jewish holidays, they celebrate and rehearse the celebration of the holidays. This book is a series of experiences, a constantly moving way of mastering the acts involved in celebrating the Jewish holidays.
You don’t read this book—you do it. This is an active, experiential, doing-oriented approach to Jewish holidays that fuses actual celebrations with role play, cooking, eating, shaking, sounding, photographing and all kinds of activities.
Set up like a scouting program, each holiday comes with opportunities. Student photography and realia help to document the journey though the Jewish year. Experiencing the Jewish Holidays is a complete program. It comes with (a) student books, (b) a parent textbook, © a free online teacher’s guide, (d) free online parent folders, and (e) free online family education manual.
