We invite you to join us in learning and honoring Israel’s 70th Independence Day. We are offering you a gift! The escape room, designed for students in grades 2-5, is based on the iTaLAM curriculum. Come and join us and you can run the escape room yourself with students and parents in school.
What do you need to get the Escape Room started in your classroom?

Destruction of the temple and exile to the Diaspora for 2000 years.
