The Shana Tova chapter deals with the High Holy Days of the month of Tishre'i. It is organized into four chapters: Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simchat Torah.

The sub-units of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur focus on the concepts of Tefila (prayer), Teshuva (repentance) and Tzedaka (charity), all on a level which is understandable by the students.

Prayer: Request for forgiveness following a wrong deed, thinking about the wrong deed, and a return to the good position after the request for excuse.

Charity: Fulfillment of justice and good deeds.

As well, this sub-unit deals with the Mitzvot and customs related to Sukkot holiday and with the blessings connected to the Mitzvah of dwelling in the Suka and the handling of the four species.

The Simchat Torah sub-unit focuses mainly on the importance of the Torah and instilling love of Torah, encouraging the study of the Torah and the fulfillment of the Mitzvot with love.

The Happy Channuka chapter deals with two main ideas:

1. The story of Channuka: the struggle to maintain Jewish identity and the war against the imposition of Greek customs.

2. The Mitzvot and the customs that commemorate, for generations to come, the story of Channuka: The victory of the far outnumbered believers over their persecutors, and the cleansing and purification of the Temple in order to restore the duties of God's worship in it.

This sub-unit is organized in accordance with these two main ideas, with the recommendation to teach them in parallel, combining of the story from the past and our behavior in the present.

Happy Channuka is recommended for teaching starting from the last week of Cheshvan until the end of Kislev.

The chapter of Happy Purim (Purim Sameach) deals with two principal ideas:

1. the story of Purim as presented in Megilat Esther, focusing in the four "heroes" of the scroll: Ahasuerus, Esther, Mordehai and Haman.

2. the Mitzvot and the customs of Purim which are directly connected to the story of Megilath Esther and keep reminding us the concept of "Venahafoch Hu" (on the contrary): "And the month that has turned for them from sorrow to joy and from grief to a holiday" (Esther, chapter 9, 22).

The sub-unit is organized along these two principal ideas, and is intended for teaching during the month of Adar. We recommend to begin teaching this unit on the first day of Adar, attaching it to the custom of "When Adar starts, ...."

The chapter From Pessach to Shavuot (Mipessach ad Shavuot) contains three main parts that are conceptually interconnected:

1. Pessach Kasher VeSameach;

2. Counting the Omer;

3. Shavuot.
The subject of Pessach Kasher VeSameach deals, through the story of the Exodus from Egypt, with the main theme of liberation from slavery into freedom and how this event is celebrated in our days by the Seder, including the Mitzvot and the Hagada.

The subject of Counting the Omer (Sefirat Ha'omer) deals with the counting that starts on the second day of Pessach and continues until Shavuot.

The topic of the Holiday of Shavuot deals mainly in the essence of the Shavuot as the holiday of the giving of the Torah, as well as its second theme, as the holiday of First Fruits, connecting it to Jerusalem, the Temple city.

Pessach Kasher VeSameach is recommended for teaching immediately following Purim. After Pessach, we recommend investing a short time on a daily basis for the blessing of Sefirat HaOmer and the counting itself. The sub-unit on Shavuot is recommended for teaching after Yom HaAtzmaut (Israel's Independence Day).

This sub- unit is organized along two sub-topics: Yom Ha'Atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim.

Yom Ha'Atzmaut is recommended for teaching immediately after Pessach and until the 5th of Iyar (Israel's Independence Day). The unit of Yom Yerushalayim is recommended for teaching during the period between Yom Ha'Atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim, on th 28th of Iyar.
