Haggadah Project

Haggadah Project is an intergenerational video storytelling workshop in which middle school students capture video stories about elders in their family (grandparents, relatives) and collaborate with them creatively. Students make interview-based documentary films about memory objects, cultural activities, and historical testimony. In the workshop case studies, student participants reported stronger multi-generational relationships, deeper understanding of historical events, and insights about their religious and cultural identities. The curriculum and case study results are available on a website, ​https://medium.com/haggadahproject , and will be utilized by educators at several middle schools in the Los Angeles area to launch future intergenerational video storytelling workshops.
