Are any of the students in the above resources trained for political protest in Hebrew school? In what ways does this sign run counter to popular ideas about Hebrew school? What do you think the sign holder means by “this is the moment I trained for in Hebrew school?” What do you think he or she learned in Hebrew school that brought them to this particular rally?
