The perfect Yom Ha’atzmaut programming for your classroom in honor of Israel at 75

Bring the power of film to your students

As Israel approaches its 75th anniversary, it’s time to start thinking about how to commemorate this historic milestone in the classroom. 

The best way to engage students is through Unpacked for Educators’ Yoms Film Festival. This initiative, created for Israel at 75, is perfect for engaging students of all ages in Yom Hashoah, Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha’atzmaut programming. 

Our educators have hand-picked a selection of films and moderator guides to help you facilitate meaningful discussions with middle-high school and college aged students. 

Each film is available for 75-100% off for a limited time.

Use these “Yoms” related films to celebrate and explore the inspirational stories, the colorful mosaic and the complex history that make up the fabric of today’s Israel.

Yom Hashoah
Commemorate this auspicious day by opening up a discussion about different forms of Jewish resistance both during the Holocaust and in its aftermath.

Yom Hazikaron​
Explore the sacrifices that Israelis have made for the safety and security of their homeland.

Yom Ha’atzmaut
Celebrate the innovation, leadership, diversity and rich culture of Israel by meeting some of the incredible people who have impacted the country in small and large ways.

Introduce your students to the heartwarming characters and uplifting stories that will remind you why there is no place like Israel — the lifeblood and heart of the Jewish people.

Preparing students with nuanced Israel Education

The documentary “Israelism,” featuring disillusioned American Jews, critiques the way many were taught about Israel. We unpack some of the main issues the film raises and reflect on how Israel education addresses these issues and prepares students for the diverse perspectives and real challenges they encounter later in life.
