HALB hosted its first Jewish History Fair.
Fifth grade girls’ Ivrit teacher Morah Saba spent the past year teaching the girls the various key periods of Jewish History, culminating in their dramatic presentations and an interactive fair in the HALB gym.
The fifth grade girls served as docents at this pop up museum dressed in the costumes of the various periods in history and explained each exhibit. The exhibits included the time of the Avot, Yetziat Mitzrayim, the Shoftim, Ruth HaMoaviah, the Beit Hamikdash, the Shtetl, the Golden Age of Spain, the Inquisition, the Holocaust, and the forming of Medinat Yisrael. In addition there was an exhibit featuring the various famous synagogues from around the world.
“Our children learn various aspects of Jewish History in Chumash and Navi but are unclear how each period relates to the other,” Morah Saba said. “They now have an understanding of the timeline of our Jewish people.”
