Navigating Inner Challenges and Societal Discord through Jewish Text and Social Emotional Learning

Recommended for: 

This course is recommended for high school students to learn to debate, express one’s own opinions cogently and learn to be an active listener to another opinion. 

Teenagers have always had to navigate the tricky tension between forming an individual identity and a competing need for social belonging. However, today’s toxic environment of political polarization, demonization of the other, and a global pandemic has pushed this tension into overdrive.

How can we help our high school students meet these challenges?

Pardes is currently piloting educational materials for high school students . There are 3 units that each include an educator’s guide, accompanying slides, and student materials. The educational materials are free of charge in the 2020-2021 academic year in exchange for feedback.

Please feel free to be in touch with Sefi Kraut at to sign up.
