Mahloket Matters: A 4-part Discussion for Parents and Teens
Tuesday, February 1 @6:30pm-8:00pm
Mahloket Matters: A 4-part Discussion for Parents and Teens to learn to talk about some of the hard things happening in our world today.
Facilitated by Rabbi Sharon Litwin
Using a model created by the Pardes Center for Jewish Educators, we will create a framework for a constructive conflict mindset, and an understanding that disagreements can be a positive opportunity for growth and deepening of relationships. We will study Jewish texts to help us consider social values, assess current events, form our own opinions, and learn how to relate to others with whom we disagree. We will consider our own Social Emotional Learning to acquire and apply the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to develop healthy identities, manage emotions, achieve personal and collective goals, and cultivate intergenerational relationships.
Tuesday, February 1: Creating the Framework
Tuesday, March 1: My Pronouns Are??!?? Gender Identity and how to talk about it in a multigenerational setting

Tuesday, May 10: Is there anything Jewish about Cancel Culture?
