Celebrate Jerusalem with resources and lesson plans from the National Library of Israel. High school students discover the fascinating history of Naomi Shemer’s love song to Jerusalem, Yerushalayim Shel Zahav in a lesson based on the lyrics written in Shemer’s own hand, photographs, and biblical texts that inspired the song.

Middle school students learn about heroes of Jerusalem in the lesson plan Jerusalem Personalities. Students of all ages create maps or Jerusalem themed posters based on Jerusalem’s First Tourist Map. Students can also update the illustrations on the map by using the internet to find current photographs.

Find these and many more Jerusalem resources and materials on the NLI education website.
