תוכן הפעולה


The Activity steps

The Kotel Crowns

You have to give Crown for each kid, shaped like the kotel (wall).you will put a note on the crown for each kid in his turn. On the note you will write name of places, people… Metzudat David, The City of David, The Shiloach Spring, Yad Vashem, The Knesset, The Kotel, The Temple, King Solomon, URI LUFOLIANSKI, and Jerusalem of gold…

The kid that has the note on his head doesn’t know what he has on his head, but all the kids around know. The kid that have  the note on his head have to ask questions  the rest of the kids, in order to know what does he have on his head.

The answers of the kids have to be just Yes or No.

When ever a kid discover what he has on his head, you give him a candy

Public auction

You have to give each kid 800 (it is a good opportunity to introduce the kids the Israeli bills) the bills are copies.

In each time you sell another place in Israel (you have to bring colourful pictures-of these places: Metzudat David, The City of David, The Shiloach Spring, Yad Vashem, The Knesset, The Kotel, The Temple, King Solomon. It is very important before you sell a place to explain the kids what is the place.

You need to start from 200  

You have to guide the kids that they need to think very good before they wasting their money.

As expected, the Kotel will be the place that they will pay the most of their money, and they will fight in order to get it.

It is very importance to explain the kids why the Kotel is so important for us today (last parts of the temple….)

At the end ask who has the most of the places?

Who as the kotel?

Throwing the ball into the Kotel

Prepare before Shabbat hard board that you will draw a Kotel on. After you drawed the Kotel make a 4-5 holes (a little more big than a small size a ball)

Tell the Chanichim to stand in a raw, and each in his turn will try to throw the ball to the hole. Make it as a completion between them (count for each of them the number of their shoots)

The kid who makes the most of the shoots will get a prize.

 A note for the kotel

Give for each kid a small note and asked them, if you were at the Kotel now, what would you ask for yourself? What kind of noted you were putting inside the holes?

Give each of them to participate; it is better to make it as a round (to make sure that everybody will participate)

What do I feel in Jerusalem?

This part can be good for kids on 6-8 grades but not for 3rd -4th grade

You have to give each kid a set of “feeling faces” for example: happiness, sadness, frightening, mercy, fun, enthusiasm, holy….. (All the faces are cut separate from each other and on them the name of the feeling is written.

On the floor you need to put name of places (or pictures) as: school, classroom. The principle room, my grandma and grandpa’s home, the shul, foreign people’ house, mourner's house….

Ask the Chanichim what do they feel in each place?

Ask the Chanichim to put the feeling’s faces next to each place according to what they feel.

Than put on the floor a big Kotel picture and ask them how do they feel in the Kotel? (or how will they feel their?)

The goal of this game is that the Chanichim will understand that in the Kotel we feel different, because it’s holiness.

This week we will have Jerusalem day

It is very importance to make the connection, tell the Chanichim that during this week we will have Jerusalem day. The Hebrew date for it is כ"ח אייר.

Explain the kids that we did not have Jerusalem, right after we won in the independence war on 1949, the Jordanians conquered it. It took 19 years until we succeed to get Jerusalem back. On 1967 כ"ח אייר the war on Jerusalem started. When it ended we got Jerusalem back.






: Jerusalem Day (Hebrew: יום ירושלים, Yom Yerushalayim) is an annual Israeli national holiday celebrated on Iyar 28 (כ"ח באייר).

It is primarily celebrated by secular and national-religious (religious Zionist) Israelis and Jews. Celebratory customs outside of Israel include saying the full Hallel prayer, dancing, and learning about Jerusalem's history; Israeli schools devote the week preceding this day to enhancing students' knowledge and understanding of the city's significance.

According to the 1947 UN Partition Plan, Jerusalem was to be an international city, not part of either the proposed Jewish or Arab state. The Jewish leadership accepted the plan, but the Arab leadership rejected it. After the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, the city was divided between Israeli and Jordanian control; Jordan controlled the Old City and the Eastern side of Jerusalem, and killed or forced the Jews in those areas out. Jews were forbidden from entering Jordanian Jerusalem, including their holy sites, and most Jewish cemeteries and synagogues throughout the West Bank were desecrated.

In 1967, East Jerusalem, location of the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site, was captured by Israel during the Six-Day War. The war ended in ceasefire on June 11, 1967.

I attached more historical details for you, the Madrich, just in case the Chanichim will ask you more questions, and I want you to be able to answer them:
