Course Details


· Rosh Chodesh - Players will learn about Rosh Chodesh through interactive STEM activities that help them visualize the Hebrew calendar and its uniqueness relative to the Gregorian calendar. They will then put their knowledge to the test in order to understand the meaning of Rosh Chodesh and its application in their own lives.

· Rosh Hashanah - Players work together in a team relay race to overcome sweet-themed obstacles and learn about and participate in the Jewish ritual of Tashlich by tossing Minecraft bread into a virtual river. 

· Yom Kippur - Players will learn about the purposes and practices of Yom Kippur, and build a greater understanding of the concept of forgiveness through a series of challenging scenarios.

· Sukkot - Players learn about this harvest festival by building their own Sukkah in Minecraft. They’ll then “sukkah hop” to see each others’ creations, shake (a Minecraft) lulav and etrog, and hear the prayers we say as part of these traditions.

· Simchat Torah - Players will explore the first parsha and learn about Simchat Torah through solving riddles and completing puzzles. Then, groups will celebrate the beginning of a new Torah reading with dancing in a synagogue and completing various challenges.
