The news is filled with disturbing stories about children bullying and harassing each other verbally and through social media. Some of these cases have even ended in the courts. How can we teach our children that Judaism condemns hurtful speech in the strongest terms? Our camping services and initiatives department just notified 50 day and resident JCC camps that they will receive a total of $50,000 to implement programs around the theme of the power of words. The Mandel Center for Jewish Education has prepared a new TAG: Jewish Values Through JCC Camping® unit on just that topic, which the camps will use.
