Educational Resources for International Holocaust Remembrance Day - January 27


International Holocaust Remembrance Day is January 27.

On my website, there are 170+ links to learn about the Holocaust.

Site languages include English, Hebrew, French, German,

Italian, Russian, and Spanish.

Since I created the page in1997, I have been updating it

at least 2 times a year: before International Holocaust 

Remembrance Day - January 27 and before 

Yom HaShoah - this year on April 28, 2022.

This week, I found that several sites on my list have

closed down. If a site closed, I will try to find 

a copy of its content in the Internet archive.

If I am listing the content from the archive,

I will write near the link: "via". 

This year, I discovered on Youtube, a video called:

"There Once Was a Town" - a 90-minute 

documentary about the small town of 

Eishyshok, Poland - now Lithuania.

The film is narrated by actor Ed Asner,

a descendant of an Eishyshok family.

Reknowned professor and author 

Yaffa Eliach leads a group in its search 

for remnants of Jewish life that flourished 

before the war.

I embedded the video in the video section 

of my page. 

Please share this message. Thank you.

We must not forget.

Educational and Fun Resources for Tu B'Shvat

 Hi Everyone!

Tu B'Shvat, the New Year for Trees, falls on the 15th of the

Hebrew month of Shvat, January 17 this year - 5782 / 2022.

This Jewish mini-holiday is of major importance to our

appreciation of nature and our relationship to it.

It is customary to plant trees and partake of the fruits of

the land of Israel to mark the occasion. 

However, this year is a Shmita (Sabbatical) year where planting 

in the Land of Israel is forbidden. 

Many people in Israel and all over the world will participate in 

eating fruits at a Tu B'shvat Seder.

The Jewish Trivia Quiz: Tu B'Shvat

Which fruit is used to make wine ?

When did Kabbalists originate the Tu B'shvat Seder ?

How many glasses of wine are drunk at the Tu B'Shvat seder ?

What branch of a tree did the dove bring back after the flood ?

How many days does the Hebrew month of Shvat have ?

What is associated with both Chanukah and Tu B'Shvat ?

In Israel, what happens to trees starting on the 15th of Shvat ?

Since 1901, how many trees has the Jewish National Fund

planted in Israel ?

According to the Torah, which fruits did the spies bring to the

children of Israel in the wilderness ?

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.
