Kathy Reynolds describes the project for which she won a Margot Stern Strom Award.
Students explore judgment and forgiveness through a study of Simon Wiesenthal's book The Sunflower paired with traditional Jewish texts.
Students reflect on how a traditional Jewish text sheds light on the story of a high school student’s experience with belonging.
Students explore obedience by drawing connections between traditional Jewish texts and Milgram’s psychological experiment on this behavior.
Students learn about pre-war Jewish life and compare it with today’s diaspora in order to reflect on how modernity can impact tradition.
