The Friends' Journal
We are happy to send you the first edition of The Friends' Journal!
The Friends' Journal is a unique newspaper in easy-to-read Hebrew that was written by kids from our partnership's region about different topics in their life. This new initiative is an easy tool that made just for you, the Hebrew teachers, and we hope you'll find it as another way to practice Hebrew with your students, as well as a creative way to teach about Israel.
Please, feel free to share it with your college – this for you to use.
"The Friends' Journal" is another Partnership2GETHER project that written and produced just for you! This time thanks to Nitzan School students from Kibbutz Nitzanim.
Your feedback is highly important, please share with us your thoughts. Enjoy! Partnership team
