Our self learning games of
Hebrew and Jewish holidays

The La-am website has educational games for children, mainly in the subjects of math and Hebrew but also the Jewish holidays.

Those educational games encourage self learning and encourage self confidence because they have no possible failure.

The Hebrew educational games at the La-am website encourage learning of the alef bet and other aspects of phonological awareness and language enhancement, and also practice and encourage reading. This helps the children to easily acquire reading and writing skills.

You can use these educational games to learn Hebrew. You can read more about it at our Learning Hebrew page.

For the Jewish holidays we have stories and songs for some of them, and there are more to come.

All the stories and songs for the Jewish holidays come with text and audio reading it for you, in a format that helps you practice your Hebrew reading skills.

The stories were created especially for our website, and reflect some of its Jewish holiday spirit. We hope you'll love them as much as we do.
