Resource Contents

Shortly talk about Yaacov's sleep and dream. Discuss things like the angels from Israel changing with those from out of Israel, speak about how all the land of Israel gathers up under Yaacov, and how he is promised the land of Israel forever. Then get to the game with questions about Israel that is so spoken in this Parsha.

We're playing chutes and ladders!!!!Only with ladders

Remember that the parsha begins with Yaacov's Ladder.

Split them up into a few teams, and use keys or something for pieces. When a team arrives at the top/bottom of a ladder, they answer a question. If they get it right, they either go up the ladder, or stay at the top (depending on where they are), and if they get it wrong they either stay where they are, or go down (once again, depending on where they are). That's it..
