SURVIVAL CHALLENGE LEVEL 12: THE KINGDOMS OF ARAGON AND CASTILLE

Survivors, this is your FINAL SURVIVAL CHALLENGE–at least until the next Existential Crisis (maybe HISN 156). Get your act together, and get creative: use multimedia, come up with unusual strategies to get your message across. And I remind you: this isn’t a game. The ideas you come up with here may very well be the strategies that the Jewish community will need in the future. Do well–we are are depending on you.
