Modernizing Bible Education

Megalim: The City of David Institute for Jerusalem Studies
Project Description

Bible and Jewish studies teachers in contemporary Israel struggle with the challenge of bringing the biblical stories to life for twenty-first century high school students. The City of David’s educational program Megalim produces exciting videos and educational modules which allow the students to touch Israel’s past with their own hands and feel that the biblical events really happened. Students report amazing experiences which deepened their understanding of Judaism and Zionism.

This video, filmed and produced by Ardon Bar-Hama, showcases the programs operated by Megalim in Jerusalem and at the City of David.
