Being a Mensch

This term, Year 4 students in Jewish Studies focus on exploring Jewish traditions, texts and teaching around מדות (virtues) being a mensch – a person of integrity, morality and dignity, who acts with a sense of what is right and responsible.

Students have selected מדות (virtues) they think are important for someone to be a mensch, and have identified the virtues and qualities they feel are personal strengths. 

As the term progresses, students will be learning more about particular מדות (virtues), engaging with Jewish texts and teachings, making connections to their own lives and being challenged to put these מדות (virtues) into action in their own lives.
