Looking Forward

Note: This activity may be done in the classroom or as a written homework assignment depending on the amount of time you have.

  1. Ask your students to think about Jewish life today and the communities they are part of, using the following questions:
    • Do you think we have achieved what these groups were trying to do? If not, why not? If yes, how have these groups helped to change what the Jewish community looks like? Give specific examples.
    • Are their goals still our goals today? What other goals for the Jewish community or the outside world do we have today? If we succeed with these goals what might the Jewish community of tomorrow look like? What might the world of tomorrow look like?
    • How do you imagine students in the future might portray the Jewish community you live in today, if they were to do this activity? What issues might they identify as major concerns of your time?
