Middot Chart

This middot grid provides teachers and students with a list of Jewish values in Hebrew and English. Teachers may encourage their students to learn the words in Hebrew and their meanings. Then, challenge students with these prompts:

  • For each value, think of someone you know who demonstrates that value.
  • For each value, develop an action plan of how you could demonstrate that value.
  • Interview your parents. Which of these values do they hold as a core belief?
  • Assign one value for each month. During each month, concentrate on practicing that value with your family.
