Students will learn the traditions of the Jewish religion from a historical and secular perspective. The smell of matzo balls and the crunch of latkes will make for an amazing learning experience. All the while we will share our experiences and grow together in our virtual classroom.
This class consists of three main components:
Learning the holiday:
Each week learners will receive a video presentation that thoroughly explains the holiday or celebration we are focusing on that week. The video is a pre-recorded lesson and will include slides, video clips and traditional music. After completing the video lesson, learners will be well-versed in the origin of the topic, key words/phrases, symbols of that event, greetings associated with that observance and more.
Noshing (that’s a fun Jewish term for “eating”) on authentic eats:
Following the lesson, learners will have a series of videos that guide them through the edible portion of our learning. We will make matzo ball soup, chocolate-covered matzo, honey cake and latkes (one recipe for each of the four weeks of class). These videos are full demonstration videos and contain all the steps necessary for learners to create these amazing dishes too. A complete supply/ingredient list is attached to the welcome post in the classroom for easy preparation.
Our classroom offers plenty of opportunity for interaction. Each week students will be asked to share their feedback on the food they’ve made as well as a photo. We’ll also have a key discussion topic/question each week regarding the holiday or observance we are focusing on.
