This past Sunday our 6th graders discussed the final points of Pikuach Nefesh (to save a person's life) in comparison to preventing animals from suffering. Many students shared their perspectives and were able to back up their opinions with examples and other students respectfully disagreed. I am glad to see progress towards interacting with one another's ideas, and discussing these big topics of morality and values as a community. Next class we will be moving on to start talking about morality when it comes to the topic of self defense. I know the students will enjoy digging into this topic and look forward to hearing their ideas and fresh perspectives.
