Introduction to the Prophets

Thanks to Esther Rosenfeld for this lesson plan.

The students will be introduced to the different types of prophets, their tasks and fears.

Level : 1-12 Graders


A few days

1. Divide the class into as many groups as Prophets you are introducing.

2. Each group is assigned a Prophet and the appropriate Shlock Rock song as well as a Tanach for reference.

3. The groups prepare a skit based on their song and the Tanach about their prophet emphasizing things such as conversations with G-d, miracles, their tasks, reactions of the people etc. Encourage your class to use costumes and props and allocate a few days for the assignment.

4. The discussions following the skits can be based on questions such as :- Did the Prophets accomplish their tasks right away? Why do you think they did this type of phenomenal happening ? Was the Prophet more concerned for the Jews welfare, or G-d's greatness? What qualities do you think are important in a Prophet?
