'Summer 38' – A New Online Summer Project


Source: Halacha Education Center 


In this new online project in Ivrit, called in Israel "Summer 38" for the number of Mishnayot in Masechet Rosh Hashana, Jewish children learn a daily Mishna in memory of the 67 soldiers who fell in Operation Protective Edge, through 38 animated videos with HaRav Rimon, head of the Halacha Education Center. This learning adventure has now begun, and will be completed by the end of the summer vacation. The learning will be conveyed through experiential videos, utilizing motion graphics and animation. In each five minute long video visitors learn the Mishna, and acquire vital tools to study and analyze virtually any Mishna in the future.

At the end of each video, children will be invited to answer an online quiz. Those who correctly answer all 38 quizzes will receive a prize. Photos and information about two of the soldiers who fought in last summer's Operation Protective Edge, and did not return will also be presented following each study session. The videos will be posted at the dedicated project website, so that by the end of the summer, thousands of children will complete Masechet Rosh Hashana.
