Toolkit for Schools

What is the 9Adar Project?
The 9Adar Project seeks to promote a culture of healthy and constructive disagreement throughout the year, with a particular focus on the week surrounding the Hebrew date of the 9th of Adar, which has become the international Jewish Week of Constructive Conflict.

What is the state of human relationships in your school, among students, faculty, on your school boards and committees, among your parents and faculty? Does everyone feel included and valued? Are all conflicts respectful? Does everyone feel that they have impact and none feel dominated or bullied?

9Adar promotes the culture of engaging conflicts in a healthy and constructive way. Schools, campuses, synagogues, Jewish organizations and conflict resolution organizations all take part with various activities, including dedicating lesson plans, a newsletter, dvar torah, school assembly, or a brief faculty learning session on the topic of constructive conflict.

Download this toolkit for easy-to-use ideas on how to bring the culture of constructive conflict further into your school.
