Unit Overview 

This unit encourages young people to think beyond themselves and to treat others with tolerance and respect. Using Biblical and Rabbinic texts as a basis, youth explore appropriate ways to relate to others. They focus on issues of discrimination and tolerance, both in fictional and non-fictional situations.  

Service Experience 
As advocacy for equity, youth write letters to Congress to speak out against discrimination and to support anti-hate legislation.
