INTERACTIVE HISTORY LESSONS

The “Immersion” Project

It’s a role situational project, which is held in the form of brainstorming. The central topic of the project is history. This can be the history of countries, world leaders, wars and even romantic stories. Participants are divided into two or three groups and receive introductory information about who or what they represent (country, group of people, profession, etc.), and what kind of conflict exists between these countries, people or professions. Next, the teams need to find a solution to the conflict.

Project Objectives:

  • To study history, literature, cinematography;
  • To teach project participants to find a solution from disputes;
  • To Improve communication skills.

Topics that were studied:

– disputed territory of the Jordan River and Kinneret

– Six-day war (how to negotiate and not to fight)

– the Tu B’Av festival on the example of the classic work by W. Shakespeare “Romeo and Juliet”

– events at the Olympics in Munich in 1972 (a terrorist attack with hostage-taking)

– the “Elephant Man” movie – how to live, if you are not like everyone else

Thanks to the creative approach and love for their work, volunteers teach teenagers to love history and develop curiosity. They simply show the importance of continuous learning without being bored at all.

FAMILY SHABBATON

It is an annual event, which the volunteers of the “Family Center” organize for people of all ages. It is a one-day camping, organized for the whole family, from children to grandparents. Some classes are held for participants taking into account their age characteristics, and some – as family activities. The volunteers of different ages (12+) are involved into development and implementation of the program, musical breaks, as well as all activities for the participants. Activities last an average of 6 hours. Due to the age difference, volunteers learn to understand better different age groups, which helps them to communicate positively with people of other generations.

CHILDREN HOLIDAYS

This volunteer project is organized in 2013 and is held every month or two. Volunteers write a program that usually consists of 4 blocks: introduction, active part, informative part (studying the Jewish traditions), creative master class. When the program is written, the same volunteers call and invite children and their parents to a holiday. On the day of the event, volunteers prepare the hall in the “Family Center”, meet children and carry out the prepared program with them. On average, the activities last for two hours. As a result, the participants of the holidays learn better Jewish traditions in a game form, get acquainted with each other and happily come to other events held by the Family center.
