Poster Tales is a series of Israeli-made posters that originated with the founding of the Jewish state. Each year, Israeli artists submit their posters and designs in the hope that one will be featured as Israel's Independence Day image. Each poster – with its vivid imagery, symbols and themes – encapsulates a time and a people that shows the progression of Israel through the decades. Below is a sample lesson plan tailored to commemorate Jerusalem and the Six-Day War.
Yom Yerushalayim Sample Lesson
Designed for Israel’s Independence Day throughout the years, these historical and contemporary posters offer a rare perspective into Israel’s national mood and aspirations. They reflect on the struggles, values and ideals of Israeli society.
This is a sample lesson for Yom Yerushalayim. This program can be used in many ways depending on the classroom setup, the goals, and the allotted time.
