Exploring My Identity

Enduring understandings: 
  • Our identities are complex and shifting, and shape the way we move through the world.
  • Jewish identity is not simple and homogenous, but complex and changing.
Essential questions: 
  • What are the parts of your identity?
  • What are the factors that influence our own identities (those identities that we choose and those that are imposed on us by others)?
  • How does your identity change, or how might parts of your identity come into conflict, in different contexts?
  • What stereotypes do we have about Jews in America?
