Make your classroom come alive with 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, our educational films can help add texture to your students’ classroom experience.
