Challenge and Response – Protests

JTeach.org offers Jewish art projects, lesson plans, activities and worksheets for Jewish holidays, Mitzvot, Torah, Israel and Hebrew.

Challenge and Response – Protests

When protests erupt, social media and TV networks flash images of demonstrations, powerful language is spoken, and heightened communal tension is palpable. Many of our students need safe opportunities to process the issues and images.  Jewish wisdom can provide a framework for open discussion. The text sheets are designed to foster meaningful conversations around difficult, and sometimes contentious, topics.
