Plato taught, ''The best way to learn how to do something new is by doing it.'' In Experiencing the Jewish Holidays students don�t just learn about the Jewish holidays, they celebrate and rehearse the celebration of the holidays. This book is a series of experiences, a constantly moving way of mastering the acts involved in celebrating the Jewish holidays.

You don�t read this book-you do it. This is an active, experiential, doing-oriented approach to Jewish holidays that fuses actual celebrations with role play, cooking, eating, shaking, sounding, photographing and all kinds of activities.

Set up like a scouting program, each holiday comes with opportunities. Student photography and realia help to document the journey though the Jewish year. Experiencing the Jewish Holidays is a complete program. It comes with (a) student books, (b) a parent textbook, a free online teacher�s guide, (d) free online parent folders, and (e) free online family education manual.

They started a company to create new tools for families and teachers that would be exciting and meaningful.
