Follow in the Footsteps of Jewish Heroes
The Jewish History program follows in the footsteps of Jewish heroes throughout the ages. Stimulating lectures and field trips will give you a first-hand look into the lives and stories of Jewish and Israeli history. The Jewish Heroes educational program emphasizes the connection between Jewish history, self-defense and the survival of the Jewish people. This connection is the theme of many guest lectures as well.
Thematic lessons connected with an historical perspective will also be included in some of the practical Martial Arts lessons as well. Well-known Jewish stories such as David and Goliath, Judah and the Maccabies, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and Israel's modern-day wars for survival are a few examples. The Jewish Heroes course will strengthen your connection to Israel by learning about the great Jewish warriors and walking in their footsteps as you visit the actual places where their battles were waged.
