Fall Elective Class Descriptions
MODERN HEBREW - Moshe Alfasi
Find it hard to learn a language just from reading a text book? Ein baya - no problem! Improve your Hebrew through conversation, reading and writing, songs and games!
JEWISH LAW REVIEW: MISHNAH ON DAMAGES - Ora Jezer
Settle legal disputes and test your own sense of justice against the principles found in the Mishnah (the first major work of rabbinic writings, completed around 200 CE.) You'll be presented with cases, work out your own verdicts, study a selection from the Mishnah, and apply ethical principles to determine a verdict. (This class is geared toward 7th-9th graders.)
JEWISH HUMOR - Dr. Norm Weiner and Rabbi Pepperstone
The course of Jewish Yoga reflects on principles of Jewish ethics while practicing postures from the hatha yoga tradition. Each week, we will discuss a trait studied in the Mussar tradition, for example, truth, humility, or silence, and practice poses associated with the trait. Each week, we will also practice a core set of poses to build rhythm and ease in a yoga practice.
