3: The Stories - You Are Part of the Story
During the program, each student-senior pair completes a worksheet that represents another fascinating chapter in the story of the Jewish people, which is then posted online as part of the Beit Hatfutsot – The Museum of the Jewish People’s collection of the greater ongoing story of the Jewish people: www.ravdori.co.il
These stories represent the completed document recorded together by students and older participants during the program. In addition to documenting stories, the pairs post photos and images as well as links to PowerPoint presentations and filmed videos. While documenting the story, students choose a memorable quote and a new word they learned from the senior.
