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.

The goal of life is to add experience & wisdom, without losing our youthful idealism, curiosity, honesty, purity, etc.
