Understand others. Understand yourself.

Jewish Holidays

We are excited to partner with the Meyerhoff Center to produce Ask Big Questions conversation guides for the Jewish holidays.

All of these guides are distinctively Jewish versions of the more universally-human materials that we feature on this website. These guides incorporate Jewish texts and themes and can provide the basis for a rich conversation among diverse groups of students from all kinds of Jewish backgrounds.
