Social Action: The Prism Project – Each six to seven week Prism (3-4 per year) begins with a mifgash, or meeting, between the class and a guest from the community. The guest shares a conundrum for students to resolve, offering a prism through which to explore issues in Jewish values, belief, and action. Ownership is placed squarely in the hands of the students. Teachers move away from center stage to work as facilitators and mentors, helping students make sense of what they discover. At the end of each Prism, students present their findings to the guest, who can then put their ideas into action.
