Herzl’s Vision and Legacy

To help Grade 6 students in many of our day schools learn more about Herzl and his influence on the founding of the State of Israel, we created a program focused on his vision and legacy. The program was the culmination of lessons in class about Herzl. The students were divided into small groups where they were tasked with one of the following:   1) building their ideal society; 2) designing what they imagine would be the “perfect” school; 3) taking responsibility for a Kibbutz budget and making decisions about what to prioritize and 4) creating useful inventions. To pull the learning all together for the students, the Shinshinim from the Israel Engagement Initiative of Federation CJA, presented a short interactive play on Herzl.
