Educational Resources about the Holocaust


Shalom.

Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, is Thursday, April 12, 2018.
I posted on my website 170 links to learn about the Holocaust.
Site languages include English, Hebrew, Arabic, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
All links have been reviewed and verified this week.

The website address is:
www.jr.co.il/hotsites/holocaust.htm

For Holocaust Remembrance Day, Koolulam invited 600 Holocaust survivors, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to sing together in a special project of Beit Avi Chai and Zikaron baSalon in a most exciting and unique singing event called Koolulam Remembers.
The Holocaust survivors and their families participated in the event at Beit Avi Chai and sang one of the Hebrew songs that most symbolizes the life, joy, and hope of those who survived the Holocaust - Ofra Haza's Live.
I embedded the video at the top of the website page.

Please forward this message.
Thank you.

We must not forget.

Educational Resources for Passover


Hi Everyone!

Passover is a Jewish holiday, of Biblical origin, marking the birth of the Jews as a people and their emergence as a unique
nation in history, devoted to G-d's will. It celebrates the liberation of the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt
over 3000 years ago, under the leadership of Moses.

This year, Passover begins on Friday night, March 30, 2018.

The Jewish Trivia Quiz - Passover Trivia
http://www.jewish-trivia.com

In which Hebrew month is Passover celebrated ?
Why do we eat matzah during Passover ?
How old was Moshe's mother when she gave birth to Moshe ?
How long did the Jews' exile in Egypt last ?
Where did the Jews live in Egypt ?
How many days did the plague of blood last ?
What happened to Pharoh's daughter, Batiya, when the
Jewish people left Egypt ?

The above questions are examples from the multiple choice quiz. There are two levels of questions, two timer settings.
Both kids and adults will find it enjoyable.
