OpenBook: Discovering American Jewish History Through Objects

National Museum of American Jewish History

The National Museum of American Jewish History's OpenBook curriculum incorporates objects from the museum's collection chronicling the American Jewish experience. Students will strengthen their Jewish identities through critical thinking exercises and discussions with classmates. Inspired by the Talmud, each lesson page of the OpenBook curriculum is designed like a Talmud page.

Each lesson comes with the accompanying Talmud page, Student Guide, and Teacher Guide.
