One of the most important elements of the Jewish Studies curriculum is Roots.
Developed with Roots Project coordinators at Bialik College, The King David School, Leibler Yavneh College and Mount Scopus Memorial College, our unique program involves students learning about their family tree, the history of surnames, interview techniques, historical context and the significance of objects. It is delivered in collaboration with the Jewish Genealogy Society.
Our program provides essential assistance to students, parents and teachers. By attending a special information night, parents are empowered to assist and support their children as they research and complete their Roots Project. During the parents’ session, the program is clearly explained with questions encouraged.
Every two years, a selection of work from a school’s Roots Projects is exhibited in our Evolving Identities gallery. Leibler Yavneh College students’ creations are currently on display.
This program is suitable for Years 6–9.
