NU Campaign: Heroes

Using the NU Campaign t-shirts, campers will learn the stories of some of Israel's greatest heroes, including David Ben Gurion, Hannah Senesh, and Golda Meir. They will have an opportunity to reflect on the importance of these well-known stories and on how these stories intersect with their own personal stories. And finally, take out the markers and bubble paint because it's time for them to create their own t-shirts!

Poster Tales: Yearning for Peace

Every year on Yom Ha'atzmaut (Independence Day), the State of Israel commissions a poster to commemorate the year. While the posters touch on many important themes, the theme of peace is often present. Using the series of posters, campers will explore Israel's quest for peace, within its own borders, with the Palestinians and with its Arab neighbors. In the end, they will have the opportunity to create their own pieces of artwork.
