  • Gaining a better understanding of the concept of atonement according to Jewish tradition and how it connects to the values of Rodef Shalom.
  • Learning a few practical ways that might help them make amends with their friends and family members.

The Pardes Rodef Shalom Schools Program is a joint venture of the Pardes Center for Jewish Educators and the Pardes Center for Judaism and Conflict Resolution.
