  4. A Jewish Approach to Discipline

    We've all been students in classrooms where a teacher makes remarks like the following:.

    “Somebody must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed this morning” or “I'm not surprised you forgot your homework. You'd probably forget your head if it wasn't attached to your shoulders” or “You have the lowest score in the class!” We cringe because we can imagine the hurt and embarrassment the remarks have caused. We may even be pained that in the past we said something similar to our students.

I am currently asking for your input on what your synagogue does/offers for youth, grades kindergarten through 6th or 7th grade (B'nai Mitzvah) during the Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur Services.
