The Chagim Center is recommended for students in grades 6-12 and teachers of all ages to explore very rich resources, with a Jewish-Zionist-humanist cultural identity, about Jewish literature, poetry, songs, ceremonies, Jewish text, resources, activities and educational programs, and Parshat Hashavua, about every Jewish holiday and Jewish life cycle experience.
The Chagim Center works to create and form a Jewish-Zionist-humanist cultural identity by specializing in the Jewish festivals and our life and times.
Why specifically Jewish Holidays?
The Jewish festivals and holidays incorporate into them a multi-layered and rich world of content. The festivals tell us where we have come from and how we have consolidated into a nation, indicate to us the changes that our people have undergone throughout the generations and let us progress towards our joint designation. Being involved with the festival invites us to ask who we want to be as individuals and as a society.
On this website, there is a collection of Jewish-Zionist culture, as part of a continuum of integration of a library, articles and works of art from biblical times and until the present day. Every poem, story and ceremony is an invitation to create a significant festival in the family, in class and in the community.
