Campaign 2018: Keep or Cancel? You Decide!

The 9Adar Project is inviting educators to lead an intriguing 60-90 minute event called “Mahloket Matters: How to Disagree Constructively, Unit 1: The Sanhedrin Way.”

  • Study Jewish texts about the ancient Sanhedrin’s guidelines for engaging in constructive mahloket (disagreement).
  • Practice constructive controversy through engaging in a mock-Sanhedrin exercise using one of the 9Adar 2018 conflict scenarios such as “Keep or Cancel the School’s Tzedaka Policy?” You Decide!”.
  • After going through the constructive controversy exercise, cast your class’s vote. See how other classes across our various political and ideological divides voted and why.

Voting closes on July 15th, and the results will be available on the 9th of Av (July 21). Materials will continue to be available as part of the upcoming video and lecture series, Mahloket Matters: How to Disagree Constructively.

The session is intended for groups of at least eight students.

There is no charge for these materials. Please sign up below to be part of this initiative, and login information to access the materials will be sent within 3 days.

Please spread the word to let others know about this exciting initiative.
