Distance Learning During COVID-19-2

Attention Jewish Educators

In light of the spread of the Coronavirus throughout the world and the closing of many schools, iTaLAM is ready to reinforce the curriculum for distance learning–at no additional cost*! Especially during these times, it is important to us to help as much as possible in order to continue teaching Hebrew and Jewish heritage to Jewish schools throughout the world!

*This offer is free for iTaLAM (digital and/or print) schools that purchased the program for the current school year. Schools that are NEW to the program or have not purchased for the current school year are eligible to receive one grade level at no cost and can purchase licenses for additional grade levels at a discounted rate.

What does the enrichment include:

  • For iTaLAM schools – adding licenses, tracks, and grades at no additional cost (to use until July 1, 2020).
  • For schools using print ONLY (TaL AM) or Teacher Mode – two content tracks (Hebrew and Chaggim) (three for Grade 1: Ariot, Shalom, Chaggim) at no additional cost (to use until July 1, 2020).
  • New schools – Day schools and Jewish supplementary schools that did not purchase materials (print or digital) for the current school year are eligible to receive a single iTaLAM grade at no cost for use until July 1, 2020. Additional grade levels will be available for the discounted price of $18 per student to use until July 1, 2020.
