Navigating Inner Challenges and Societal Discord through Jewish Text and Social - Emotional Learning
We are living in a time period in which extreme political polarization and demonization of the other is the status quo. This challenging environment is particularly stressful and draining on adolescents as they navigate the tricky tension between forming an individual identity and a competing need for social belonging.
How can we help our high school and upper middle school students meet these challenges?
By weaving the three components of the Mahloket Matters triangle – constructive disagreement mindset, Jewish text, and social- emotional learning – we aim to maximize the impact of each component by creating a cohesive and skill-building experience for our students.
Join Judiac Studies administrators in a series of six workshops to learn practical strategies and educational techniques for cultivating a constructive disagreement mindset and social- emotional skills via Judaic Studies classrooms and school programming. All workshop participants will also receive full access to the new Mahloket Matters Schools curriculum developed by the Pardes Center for Jewish Educators (PCJE).
