8th/9th Grade Sample Session - Learning about the Holocaust

By studying the Holocaust, we will make the essential connection between history and the moral choices we confront in our own lives. History is not a series of inevitable events. It arises through a series of individual decisions. Even what seem to be small decisions can have enormous consequences. 

When: Wednesday, January 11th @ 6:30-8:30pm
Where: Congregation Har Hashem

We will confront stereotyping and scapegoating, lack of empathy, and racism and antisemitism as we examine the holocaust. We will then look at the moral and legal issues of judgment and legacy. Throughout, we will examine how we can use this knowledge to inform how we relate to our peers, and to better fulfill our responsibilities as citizens in a democracy.
