Give the gift of classic books in Hebrew for Hanukah! You can buy them online from Sifrutake in FL or Steimatsky’s in LA and even send a subscription that will deliver books through the mail monthly for preschool and elementary school ages for a very low cost. All the options are discussed here: https://hebrewinamerica.wordpress.com/category/children/hebrew-books-children/ https://www.israeliamerican.org/keshet
Looking for ideas for Hannukah (well, we’re late in posting this, but you get the idea…) for next year maybe! This is one of our favorites, more are on our Tarbuton Hannukah Pinterest Board! Check it out.
Interesting report out of the Reut Institute, March 2012. The Israeli Diaspora as a Catalyst for Jewish Peoplehood Recommended read. English Version Key themes: North American Jewish Sabra – Israeliness is not enough, Israeli Goethe-Institute, tri-identity bundle, Israeli Social Space. The Tarbuton is sited as an example/model along with several other programs that are offered by Israelis for the community at large.
