How do we teach faith and belief to our students and children, when so much of society is dismissive of faith and belief? Should intellectual acquiescence or intimate experience be our primary goal? What are the questions that bother kids the most, and what should parents and teachers do when they don’t have satisfactory answers to these questions?
To address these and other issues, Scott spoke to Rabbi Pesach Sommer, who has over twenty years of experience teaching in Jewish days schools. He is also involved with Project Makom, an organization for charedim who are looking to find a more comfortable way of expressing their religiosity, where he speaks and offers guidance. Pesach is a popular writer, blogger, and accomplished speaker, and a noted thinker in the area of hashkafa and Jewish thought.
