Product description

Grades: 7-8    Eizehu Gibor empowers your students to live Jewish values, which is essential. For Jews, it is about being a person worthy of emulation. It’s about knowing how to do the right thing, how to make a contribution to the world, how to be a mensch, and how to live up to being created in God’s image.

We live in a world where kids need heroes. They need them because values are best learned from the people who live them. They need them because there is a shortage of values in the world in which they live.

 Eizehu Gibor: starts with values and then lets Jewish role models tell their own stories of living those values. Read Albert Einstein’s own words on being a humble person, and listen to Rabbi Harold Schulweis’ sermon about why we have an obligation to fix the world. This book is also about telling the stories of Jewish heroes whose stories are worth knowing but are seldom told. Your students can be inspired by the story of Regina Jonas, the world’s first woman rabbi, who struggled to teach about living a Jewish life during the holocaust. 

How can Debbie Friedman and Craig Taubman help us to sing praise to God by finding our voices? What’s Jewish about owning a football team? These questions are at the heart of Eizehu Gibor: Living Jewish Values and can be at the heart of your students’ classroom, too.
