LEC Miami Students Display Exhibits in Metaverse Museum

Students of Lubavitch Educational Center in Miami middle school created exhibits on important Jewish personalities, which are proudly displayed in a Metaverse museum created just for their projects. Full Story

To life it came, hundreds of years of rich history. It is never easy educating our youth on their past, but this past year the Lubavitch Educational Center in Miami Middle School designated a mini-mester just for that.

Students began with learning and researching about a figure ranging from the Gaonic period, just up until the Baal Shem Tov. Leaders, Torah Giants, Tzadikim, and Halachic Codifiers were the talk of school, as well as was who you were researching and what interesting facts you were able to uncover.

A wide range of guest speakers with vast knowledge of history were brought in to enhance the month-long minimester ensuring students continued to remain inspired by our rich history.

The minimester concluded with every student displaying his research, his stories and ideas uncovered on their topic. The display was open to elementary students, parents and friends and it was set up like a museum. Students took notes on each project while teachers rated them in a private voting system to decide the award winning projects.

Round trip tickets to the Rebbe’s Ohel and seforim were awarded. Rabbi Mendy Shachar went so far as to create a MetaVerse museum for students to be able to permanently view the projects in a virtual museum. You can see the museum here.

Special thank you to Rabbi Yakov Garfinkel, Rabbi Mendy Shachar– Program Director, Rabbi Chezki Unsdorfer – Middle School Mashpia, Rabbi Nochum Schapiro – Curriculum Director and Mrs. Rivka Cohen for thier efforts launching the program. It goes without saying all of the Rebbeim of Middle School deserve accolades for their efforts bringing this project to life.
