At the JCC Manhattan I taught a Pirkei Avot class with Rabbi Lori Forman-Jacobi. This was an exploration of the ethical treatise from the 2nd century with wisdom that is still applicable today. We brought this ancient text to life through discussion, study, and a hands-on art project through which participants each made their own book of Jewish ethics.
At Jewish Journeys at the JCC Manhattan I taught a Pirkei Avot class to 6th graders, along with Kurt Stein. Based on Ben Zoma’s text students created images based on Who is Wise, Who is Brave, Who is Rich, and Who is Honored.
