Our year-long educational project in 2018, in partnership with UJIA, marked 70 years of Israel’s independence. Over the course of 12 months, we released five resources that explored Israel from five different angles, connected to the themes of five of the festivals.
Please also pass the PDF resources onto anyone else you think might be interested in deepening their understanding. It’s free to download and distribute.
Study the theme of Freedom
Study Megillat HaAtzma’ut (the Declaration of Independence) with us.
The Declaration of Independence is one of the most important Jewish texts of modern times, and this e-resource offers you the chance to be in dialogue with it and with a range of other texts, traditional and modern, that will help you to deepen your engagement with Israel, Jewish history and the values that underpin Israel at its foundation and today. Whether you choose to focus on one particular paragraph of the Declaration or study it all, we encourage you to find a partner to learn with and engage in conversation about independence, Israel and your own identity.
Download our Shavuot resource on the theme of Pilgrimage, perfect for a Tikkun Leyl Shavuot
Download our Sukkot resource on the theme of Shelter
This is the first ever Sukkot resource created by the Limmud Chavruta Project. Inspired by the symbolism of the sukkah, lulav, and etrog, we invite you to explore the theme of Shelter through the lenses of Sukkot and Israel. When is a home permanent and when is it temporary? Is dwelling in the sukkah the realisation of an ideal or a call to action? Who should seek shelter in the State of Israel? How does God shelter us, and how do we shelter God?
