Precious moments

Yom Yerushalayim:
Re-Connecting the Heart

יום ירושלים

The first of its kind full graphic 20 page laminated source booklet was created to enable educators and community leaders to connect with Yerushalayim through the ages. Written by Rabbi Zimmerman as a joint endeavor of the Mizrachi World Movement and The Halacha Education Center's HESBER department, in its first year of 2016, more than 10,000 booklets were distributed.  Its combination of sources and pictorial graphics enable one who has heard a lecture on the booklet be able to review and connect to the story entirely through the pictures.
This 32 page full color booklet tells the story of Shemitta and its eternal message to those who do not reside in Israel and often find it difficult to relate to. During the 2014-2015 Shemitta year, students from around the world were given the opportunity to connect with Shemitta through the booklets and live, interactive presentations.

Teacher Training Seminars

Besides offering curricula on varied topics, HESBER offers teachers and educational staff who use their materials the unique opportunity of personalized tutorials with the creators of the materials.

These tutorials, executed either in person or through telecommunications, impart the outlook of the innovative approach offered by the materials, as well as an opportunity to personalize an educational program for one's particular institution. The training workshops  include detailed graphical presentations, and an opportunity for additional materials and continued contact.
