Hebrew High School of New England has partnered with the Mandell JCC to link students in Rabbi Aharon Skoglund’s chumash class with seniors in the community. The group gathers monthly to talk about a wide range of topics. Recent discussions have included immigration and Israel, the Jewish perspective on genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and human rights issues. The students’ and seniors’ enthusiasm is evident as they express their points of view and share life experiences. Throughout the year, the students will write reflections on these sessions that will add to the richness of their chumash class discussions.
