For anyone who is in quarantine and/or teaching remotely due to Coronavirus, my colleagues and I at the Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot in Tel Aviv would like to offer a live virtual museum tour, run over Zoom and led by one of our amazing museum educators, to you and your students. Each tour is anywhere from 30-50 minutes (depending on your schedule), can be accessed by students from home as long as they have a computer/tablet/smartphone, are engaging and funny, and can include any special points you’d like us to cover (special Hebrew words, concepts about Jewish history, peoplehood, etc.). Each tour is only for your school and you have a guide (via Zoom) to yourself to talk with. This is normally a paid tour for schools, but due to the situation many are in, we would like to offer the first 20 schools a free tour. 

Feel free to contact me for more information at [email protected] Hoping this situation improves sooner rather than later for us all.
