Week One: Avraham’s Magical Tent - January 23

Amidst the burning sands and sun, Avraham’s home was a physical and spiritual oasis for the weary traveler. His deep connection with the Creator planted the roots of the entire Jewish nation. It was here G-d promised him the Land of Israel. In this lesson, children learn the basics of architecture and design. Friendships are deepened as they collaborate to create Avraham’s tent.


Week Two: Jericho and The Miraculous Falling Wall - January 30

As the desert nomads took their first steps back upon the ground of the land of their forefathers, the towering walls of Jericho, standing in the path of their destiny, came crumbling down before them. Children discuss miracles and science, and bring it all to life using household materials to construct the strongest wall to fortify Jericho.


Week Three: The Holy Temple, a Beacon of Light  - February 6

The Holy Temple was the heart of Jewish life and spirituality in ancient Israel. It was built to be a beacon– its windows engineered at an angle to emanate widening beams of light, illuminating the streets with its physical and spiritual glow. Students will explore how small individual actions have the power to brighten the world, as they construct their own night light to light up the dark.


Week Four: The Western Wall and the Power of Prayer - February 13

Throughout the generations, Jews journeyed to pray at this holy site. We may not have a Temple, but here at this one remaining wall, we can tap into our roots and our unique history, our prayers joining those of our ancestors. It is here we are reminded of our inherent and pervasive connection with the Divine. GROW students learn the power of prayer as they create their own mini Kotel.


Week Five: Miracles and Modern Science - February 20

Ranked as one of the top Engineering Universities in the world, Technion has emerged as a global leader in scientific innovation and impact. Children discover the magic, the wonder, the miracles, and the lives that have been protected by technological advancement. After discussing Israel's challenges with water, kids will build their very own model of Israel's famous irrigation system.


Week Six: Toys for Israel’s Victims of War - February 27

Many children and families in Israel were displaced from their homes and are now living in hotels in Southern Israel. GROW participants will design and create toys that will be sent to these war-affected children through a partnering humanitarian relief organization in Israel.
