The Power of Words

image description

In Judaism words do far more than tell, describe, or explain.  According to tradition, words can create an entire world out of nothing (Genesis 1); however, they can also destroy a person’s soul (Proverbs 15:4). These “mini-texts” on The Power of Words provide referenced elaboration on the core Jewish value of Guarding Your Tongue. Use these text sheets and accompanying questions with your students to provoke deep thinking and meaningful conversation.
