Post-Confirmation Blog                              November 15, 2017

During class this week, we held a Jewish Family Education night for 8th-12th grade students and parents. We began with a mini-lecture pertaining to the German people and their role in both world wars. Afterward we held a debate focusing on whether or not the German people should be blamed for the atrocities carried out by the Nazi regime. Afterwards, we held a brief discussion, where it was unanimously decided that while we should forgive modern Germany to make way for a peaceful world, it is our duty to remember these atrocities and never forget those we lost. Attached are links to two videos - Click here for the first one, a Holocaust survivor speaking about forgiving the German people, and click here for the second one, a visual called The Fallen of World War II that portrays statistics pertaining to the Second World War.

This week, after hearing about the structure of the course, the group discussed a fanciful tale from the Talmud (the oven of Achnai) and shared their thoughts on God. Next week, the plan is to engage in handmade midrash while discussing the two stories of creation in Genesis.
