2018 - Israel 70 E-resources

For 2018, we are delighted to launch a year-long educational project for Israel 70, in partnership with UJIA. Over the course of 2018, we will release five e-resources that will explore Israel from five different angles, connected to the themes of five of the festivals.

Our first resource, for Pesach, on the theme of Freedom, challenges you to consider how the establishment of a Jewish state in the Land of Israel in 1948 has affected how free we all are. Over four sections that echo the Haggadah's Four Questions, traditional and modern texts interact to encourage conversation around Diaspora, Israel, Jews and non-Jews. With the Limmud Chavruta Project's commitment to inclusive Jewish learning, all texts are translated and there are no right answers, only invitations to ask more questions!

You can download our Pesach 2018 e-resource on the theme of Freedom in English, Russian & Spanish.

Whilst it can be used any time, we would encourage you to bring the resource to your seder table this Pesach, which begins on the evening of Friday 30 March. The Pesach seder is the traditional time for Jewish questions, and we hope that this resource will add to the richness of your Pesach learning. Pesach is also called z'man cheirutenu, the time of our freedom, and Israel's 70th anniversary is the perfect opportunity to delve deeper into freedom and its complexities.
