JECC's Jewish Holiday Snapshots

JECC's Jewish Holiday Snapshots | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

"Jewish Holiday Snapshots" offers quick overviews (snapshots) of Jewish holidays. Using the drop down menus, above, take a wide-angle look at the bigger ideas, or zoom in for a close-up to learn about common practices. Currently (September, 2016) only Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur information is posted, but if the site proves useful, other holidays will be filled in. The JECC built "Jewish Holiday Snapshots" especially for early childhood teachers who are looking for an adult-oriented overview as they prepare learning experiences for their young students. However, the site's information and resources are certainly applicable to others who want to click and learn. EC educators (and interested others) are invited to explore the pages whenever is convenient - at home, while involved in classroom prep, or while sitting in a carpool line. Directors may wish to devote part of a staff meeting to individual and/or small group learning with "Snapshots," with the caveat that those around the table also share personal experiences, understandings and questions.
