A Gift from the National Library of Israel for the New Year


Source: National Library of Israel 


Learning with primary sources is a great way to develop 21st century skills such as critical thinking, communication skills, creativity and imagination, and collaboration. The primary source sparks student interest and leads the students to investigate, ask questions, and connect to prior knowledge.

At the National Library of Israel, we have millions of primary sources such as maps, photographs, posters, newspaper articles and more. Thousands of these resources have been adapted for use in educational systems. In the NLI education websites we have carefully selected the resources that best suit you - educators in the Jewish world. Our resources include topics such as the Jewish calendar, Jewish communities around the world, Israel, Jewish values and more. We have developed a simple 4-step methodology guiding you in incorporating primary sources in your teaching to create meaningful learning experiences.
