One of the most important items on the Jewish studies curriculum is ‘The Roots Project’. The Jewish Museum of Australia’s unique program has been developed in conjunction with the Roots Project coordinators from Bialik, King David, Mount Scopus and Leibler Yavneh Colleges. It is delivered in collaboration with the Jewish Genealogy Society.
Our program provides essential assistance to students, parents and teachers. Students learn how to research their family tree, the history of surnames, interview techniques, historical context and the important and significance of objects.
By attending a special information night, parents can feel empowered to assist and support their children as they research and complete their Roots Project. During the parents’ session the program is clearly explained and questions are encouraged.
