Jewish history calendar offers food for the soul

  • CommunityCalendar
Non-profit organisations Soul Workout and Afrika Tikkun have teamed up to bring out a 2020/5780 education calendar on the theme of Jewish history. The Journey Through History calendar has exquisite illustrations, as well as descriptions of the landmark moments and dates of Jewish history. It also contains all the festivals, candle lighting times, and public holidays.

“You get an appreciation of the general stages and order of Jewish history, and the explanations and descriptions are simply inspirational,” says varsity student Bianca Kaplan. Another feature is a Jewish-history game on the back page, where kids can dice their way through time.

Created by Ilan Herrmann, the managing director of Soul Workout, the calendar is a user-friendly tool to teach Jewish history, strengthen Jewish identity, and raise funds for both organisations.

Marc Lubner, the chief executive of Afrika Tikkun, says, “I’m delighted with how the calendar has come out. The feedback has been amazing.” The calendars are available at various outlets including Kollel, Feigels, and Moishes for R100 each.

Soul Workout has produced a short multimedia Jewish history show for schools to accompany the project. Contact [email protected].
