Grade 8 Post B’Nei Mitzvah Studies and Jewish Ethics

Grade 8: POST B’NEI MITZVAH STUDIES/JEWISH ETHICS: Grade 8 students are presented with a unique opportunity to discuss ethical dilemmas from a Jewish point of view.  Students discuss Jewish ethics with their peers and engage with guest speakers who are experts in their fields. The classroom teacher helps students participate in meaningful dialogue about these topics and synthesize the year’s learning.  An emphasis is placed on learning to make difficult decisions as a Jewish adult in this first year of elective study post b’nei mitzvah.
