As an inspired educator and native Jerusalemite, I love to bring the museum to life and connect people to our rich Jewish heritage
That is my mission statement, and I hope, God willing, to explore as many museums and sites as possible in the world, to inspire people to look at Jewish heritage and Jewish History with fresh eyes.
Experiential learning in a museum is edifying and enjoyable, and has proven beneficial in many different settings: Families, bat/bat-mitzvah, couples, individuals, communities, events, fundraisers, synagogue and sisterhoods, parent outings and teacher professional development sessions.
We aim to reach the soul of any Jew through the unique classroom of the museum.
Any tour that is listed here, is available privately, and customizable for schools’ curriculum.
