Bridge to Our Tradition, A: Pirkei Avot
Finally, a Pirkei Avot textbook for 6th and 7th grade students!
Organized thematically, this text by noted educator and author Nachama Skolnik Moskowitz provides students the opportunity to study a selection of essential rabbinic texts.
The Hebrew of all texts is included with wonderful translations to encourage full student participation. The methodology stresses a cooperative chevruta learning style.
A Bridge to Tradition looks at the Pirkei Avot text with three questions in mind:
- What are the character traits that help define who we are as individuals?
- What are the ways we can interact positively with others?
- What are our responsibilities to improve the world?
This approach helps students navigate the complicated journey of Jewish character development. In addition, they will learn the important task of asking questions of the text. With a complete copy of the text of Pirkei Avot
and a glossary included, and an accompanying teacher's guide available, this title is a new and indispensable addition to your curriculum.
