In Jewish Studies, middle-school students have spent the last few months learning about the beginnings of Zionism and different modes of Zionist leadership. Along with our school-wide celebrations of Yom Haatzmaut, our middle-school community came together for a Yavneh Zionist Congress. Each student was assigned a historical or current Zionist leader. Students had the opportunity to represent that leader through a series of debates and activities to envision the future of the State of Israel. We had leaders from all six historical Zionism streams, including Political, Labor, Revisionist, Religious, Cultural, as well as Zionist leaders in the Diaspora. Throughout our debate, everyone shared insightful ideas about how they thought Israel should grow as a country, and they had fun with some exciting post-challenge games! It was an excellent way to celebrate Israel @75!
