"Magic of the Mishna" ("Kesem Hamishna") is part of a series known in Hebrew as "Kesem" – a Hebrew acronym for "Readings in Miraculous Literature" – and is aimed at students in secular middle schools.
"Magic of the Mishna" contains a variety of portions of the Mishna from the orders: Moed (Festivals), Nezikin (Damages) and Zeraim (Seeds).
The book opens a small window for students into the world of halakha (Jewish law), ideas, language and personalities reflected in the Mishna, one of the classic and most important books on the Jewish bookshelf.
Israel operates religious and secular school systems, as well as a third stream for the ultra-Orthodox. In recent years, the Hartman Institute has been developing programs of Judaic Studies enrichment for the secular school system, including Be’eri
("my well") for secular high school students .
