A tradition of Aliya
This is the term used to describe a Jew's immigration to Israel. Literally it means 'uplifting'. Jews move upwards to Israel. The tradition of Aliya goes back for thousands of years. Ever since they were exiled, Jews have always yearned to return to their homeland. The Bible talks about God's promise to bring the Jewish people home:
"For I will take you from among the nations, and gather you out of all countries and will bring you into your own land... Then you will live in the land which I gave to your fathers, and you will be my people, and I will be your God." (Yechezkel 36:24,28)
Objective: To expose the chanichim to the different religious, political and social aspects of Israeli society.
In addition, to give the chanichim an opportunity to think about how and why Israeli society manifests these different views in the ways that it does. (ie why bumper stickers?)
To teach chanachim the history of Israel through a human board game/quiz.
Chanichim should leave the peulah with the understanding of the importance of tzahal and what they fight for as well as the idea that one doesn't have to be wearing a soldier's uniform to be fighting for Israel.
The chanichim should get a feel of what life in galut felt like for the Jewish People from the time of Churban Beit Hamikdash until Hakamat Hamedinah.
Goal: To teach about the huge importance of agriculture in the New Yeshuv, how this fits with our ideals, and depict the amazing obstacles that were overcome by the settlers.
