On the (Virtual) Road to Israel

On Sunday, Jan. 13, the Temple Sholom Learning Center in Greenwich hosted a school-wide Family Education Day for families of chidren in the school’s kindergarten through sixth grade. The theme of the program was a “Virtual Trip to Israel” and included interactive rotations through four parts of Israel. During their family-friendly trip, students and their parents “boarded” an El Al flight, visited Tzfat in the Galilee where they created “mystical” craft projects, stopped at the Dead Sea to learn about salt water and meet desert animals, engaged in agricultural work at a kibbutz, explored tunnels and archaeology in Jerusalem and wrote notes to insert in the the Kotel…and wrapped up a terrific trip with some spirited Israeli dancing.
