This values/middot curriculum is a compendium of half and full-year curricula on a variety of Jewish “big ideas.” There are three half-year courses: mitzvot, God, and justice (tzedek, tzedek tirdof). There are two courses that each cover a full year: one focuses on dereh eretz (appropriate behavior) and the other is on the values behind each section of Hillel’s famous quote, “If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? If not now, when?” Each unit includes background on the values, Jewish text resources and copy-ready resource sheets for student use. Originally developed for a Reform supplementary school setting, the activities will also be successful in other religious settings, as well as in a day school.
Seven pdf files are included.
