Extract from my blog
"I had sensed that my Jewish students were not feeling a great connection to all the Christian-based celebrations, therefore last year I decided to teach about Janucá celebration & the Jewish community in Argentina. I wanted those students to see that there are Hispanic people who shared their faith.
This year I’m including more Spanish speaking countries with strong historical ties to the Jewish faith in this unit.
With my novice-mid and novice-high students. I’m also discussing the Sefardí community in Spain and the religious purge that happened in 1492 en España (my students have background knowledge about 1492 because earlier on in the year, they learned about the Catholic King and Queen of Spain, Columbus and the colonization of the Americas.) I’m also mentioning the law that came into force in Spain allowing dual citizenship for the descendants of Jews forced out of Spain in 1492. The law — which aims to correct the “historical mistake” of sending Jews into exile in 1492, or forcing them to convert to Catholicism, among other atrocities, is discussed so students start becoming aware of historical reparations processes might look like.
I believe it is important to share these historical facts because they have had a ripple effect on nowadays Hispanic culture.
My goal is to activate my students’ critical thinking and make them aware of facts that turn out to be the root of so many problematic situations that are happening in the world today."
