Filled with sensory experiences, the High Holidays and the Festival of Sukkot are opportunities to create meaningful connections to Israel. The sounds of shofar blasts, the smells of holidays meals, the knocking of wood that echoes across Israel as families build their sukkot – these expressions of rituals and values can bring an authentic part of Israel into our learning and experiences. Check out this resource for ideas of how to incorporate this all into your work.
