Lunch and Learn

On September 15th, our middle school students had the opportunity to "lunch and learn" with Mr. Ben Smilowitz from Disaster Accountability Project. One of the "21st century skills"  is "connecting".  In an information age, students must be able, not only to filter information, but to connect information in new ways. It is vital to make connections between subjects, between new ideas and background knowledge, between ourselves and others.

Mr. Smilowitz shared the connections in his own life that led him from a Schechter education of Tikkun Olam to a life devoted to making a difference in the world. His talk helped our middle school students make connections from the Mitzvot they do as part of their schooling to the bigger picture of their lives beyond and after they leave MJGDS.
