This year we learned about Jewish journeys, and one of the most extraordinary ones we discovered was with Dr. Jeffrey A. Hoffman, a former NASA astronaut who celebrated Hanukkah in space!
Watch this video of an interview with Dr. Hoffman while he was aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavor in 1993. Find out more about Dr. Hoffman’s journeys to space in his Global Day ON AIR session with Rachel Raz, educator and filmmaker behind the documentary “Space Torah“.
The Global Day is celebrated annually in November - this year it's on Sunday Nov. 17th. The study theme of the year is "Speaking Volumes". From ancient arguments to modern meanings, from raising our voices to remaining silent, explore how and why words matter.
