​Hasmonean High School


NLI cooperated with teachers at Hasmonean High School to design a unique program for students based on famous Jewish and Israeli personalities. The NLI provided resources for students’ research on their personality of choice. Personalities included: Golda Meir, Henrietta Szold, Moses Montefiore, Sarah Aaronsohn, Moshe Dayan, and others. The teachers created worksheets and activities based on NLI materials.


The following year, students studied the history of Jerusalem from the Middle Ages through to modern times. The lessons were developed by Adina Abecasis, using primary sources from the NLI collections including manuscripts, maps, posters, and photographs.
