Drama is an ideal technique for helping students to internalize every aspect of Jewish tradition and culture. In this book, you will find plays, both serious and witty, for students in Grades 3-12, about such subjects as Jewish history, values, customs, holidays, and literature. Engage your students in the foolishness of Chelm, spend a few minutes in a cellar in the Warsaw Ghetto, and relive the excitement of 1948 Israel. Revisit the story of Ruth. Get into the rhythm of a Chanukah rap. Determine the most precious thing in the world at High Holy Day time. And through plays about kings and things, act out Jewish values. Plays can be presented with minimum costuming and props for classroom or assembly presentations, at camp or retreats. What a fun way to learn!
