Student Projects

There is an optional project to go alongside the curriculum, where students have the chance to harness their creativity while learning Jewish History.

For each woman, students created a creative project of their choosing to create one final piece. Each project assessed their knowledge of the history, the Jewish woman's story, and how they internalized each lesson.

Experience Jewish History

Through the lens of Jewish Women

  • What parents have to say

    Two of my daughters have had the opportunity to experience Discovering our History with Morah Aviana, and the learning journey was incredible!! She has created a study that highlights different time periods as well as the individuality and strengths of many Jewish women. It comes full circle when those lessons and inspiration are applied to the girls own lives in a way that is relatable. There was also room for my daughters to use their own creativity to express what they had learned through different mediums and projects that really helped to solidify the lessons. This curriculum is truly one of a kind!
