Education Insights: Looking at Today's World Through A Jewish Lens

By Linda Blumberg

An amazing moment at the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris was the reading of an original poem by 22-year-old Amanda Gorman, pictured on the right.

“The Hill We Climb,” powerful and beautiful, provides a tool to have important conversations with your children about racial and economic justice. I encourage you to begin these conversations to heighten their awareness of critical social justice issues and the role that each of us can play in helping to address them.

Give your children a chance to answer each question, and then help expand their thinking by adding in your own thoughts and views to supplement theirs before going on to the next question.

A great way to start out 2021 is to make a plan for getting involved in furthering social justice causes. Allowing children to pick an issue to become involved with that resonates with them will motivate them the most. There are lots of resources online, and there are plenty of stories highlighting the impacts that children have had through good works, even in the course of the pandemic. If you have trouble finding them, let me know, and I'd be glad to send some on.
