Host your local Global Day of Jewish Learning event on November 17, 2019, by gathering your community together to study Jewish texts at the same time as hundreds of other communities across the world.
The 2019 Curriculum "Speaking Volumes" is now available for registered communities!
Tell us that you're having an event by registering online (it's free!) and get access to our easy-to-use study guides in an adaptable curriculum format today.
This year’s Global Day theme is “Speaking Volumes”. From ancient arguments to modern meanings, from raising our voices to remaining silent, explore how and why words matter. Words have power.
They can create, they can harm or heal, they can explain or they can obscure.
Even our silences can speak volumes. This year, communities around the world will join together to discuss words and their impact on our lives, using Jewish texts as a starting point for conversations.
Explore the power of words by asking questions like:
Do words have the power to affect the world around us?
How can we learn through disagreements?
What can Jewish texts teach us about how our words can hurt others?
- How is silence a form of speech? What can we learn about our relationships from the names we use?
The curriculum is available in English and Hebrew, with Russian and Spanish versions coming soon.
