The Pardes Center for Jewish Educators has launched a new initiative to integrate Social-Emotional Learning into the Pardes Mahloket Matters curriculum for constructive conflict resolution, and we are starting with Shavuot materials! 

Our aim is to equip students with the competencies and resources they need to navigate today’s world, and to support them in transforming challenges into opportunities for growth, connection, understanding, and creative problem-solving.

This interactive, Zoom-friendly lesson (shareable slides included) is designed for teachers to use with students in 4th-6th grade as we approach Shavuot. Celebrating the gift of the Torah as a source of tremendous wisdom in our lives, we explore a different, nuanced understanding of the “golden rule,” V’ahavta L’reacha Kamocha.
