Re-created Israeli village teaches history to children

In the village of Kfar halfway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, children learn about Israel of 2,000 years ago and the Hanukkah story with the help of historic re-enactors. The village also features activities for kids such as harvesting olives and making oil.

"Thousands of Israeli children have visited here," said Zohar Baram. "They learn about the Maccabees and understand their nationalism, and their religion becomes stronger."
