Deepen your engagement with your students with premium videos and educational resources about Israel and Judaism.

At Unpacked for Educators, our goal is to explore the Jewish story in all its complexity, intellectual depth and sophistication. We want to untangle the challenging ideas, make the key historical moments come alive, and share the fascinating disputes within Jewish history. Our goal is to help your students see that Judaism is as meaningful and relevant as ever.

As digital media is becoming more prevalent, we want to leverage this reality and partner with you in enhancing your students’ Jewish learning. Regardless of your educational philosophy, these curated educational films can help add texture to your students’ classroom experience.

Whether you are teaching in front of a class, or from behind a computer screen, these resources are easy to integrate into your instruction.

Our collection of videos, films and resources can be used in all types of educational frameworks:

Flipped instruction – Send video links to students in advance.
Direct instruction – Show films or videos directly to students.
Project Based Learning – Anchor with a video or article.
Socratic seminar – Use videos and discussion questions.

Our vision is to add enrichment and excitement to your teaching experience.
