This Week at Midreshet Moriah
Parshat Vayeshev, 9 December, 21 Kislev
What we learned this week...
With Rebecca Shmuel (Sepha's Class)
"Leadership in Sefer Bamidbar"
(Such Nachat! Rebecca said that her favorite story is the Meraglim so I offered to let her teach it-she taught the whole period and did an AMAZING job! - Sepha)
This week I had the amazing opportunity of teaching my fellow classmates a few different ideas I prepared about the story of the meraglim. My goal was to give them a better understanding of some crucial characters in the story line that many people don't really focus on such as Caleb and Yehoshua. I prepared a few Rashis which really gave us a better understanding of how they stepped up to the other meraglim in order to convince the nation that the land is as good as HaShem says it is and that they, with the help of HaShem can conquer it from the nations that occupied it. This also teaches us that in times when most people don't have faith or start to question we should step up and be the Caleb of our generation.

In the Beit Medrash
With Dr. Aviva Goldstein: We learned about the research from the field of positive psychology on character strengths. We analyzed how our own character strengths manifest in different arenas of our lives, and how we can use them to become more self aware in our cultivation of self actualization and building nurturing relationships with others.
