Lesson 1: “Why are Young People So Idealistic & How to Stay Young?” – Redefining Education and Childhood
The class examines why young people are especially idealistic, and how the goal is not to become “adulterated” and lose that idealism with age. Every society has a measuring stick: primitive man measured by one’s physical strength, western man- by his money or prestige. Accordingly, women and children are generally going to be second-class. Judaism measures by one’s Godliness, and accordingly women and children rate especially high. Also, this Jewish view doesn’t see youth as a necessary preparation for life, but rather one of the greatest parts of life. The goal of life is to add experience & wisdom, without losing our youthful idealism, curiosity, honesty, purity, etc.
