Course Details

Description

Minecraft, the top selling video game of all time, is an amazing way for learners to come together to make friends, have fun, and learn about Judaism. Minecraft’s building blocks provide the substance to create whatever a person may desire. In this course, the Minecraft universe will be a place to build around a series of Jewish holidays. Students will participate in a series of fun, collaborative activities that incorporate Jewish educational themes around the holidays, history, and Israel.

Join us for 3 Israel-and-holiday themed Minecraft classes! We will be learning about the Dead Sea, which is so salty you can't help but float, and nearby Masada, which has a rich history and the best sunrises. We'll round out the class with a Purim exploration, where you'll learn about the holiday and heroism behind it.

Requirements
Computer, laptop, chromebook, ipad, android tablet, or mobile phone with Minecraft software downloaded. Directions will be provided after registration.
