The Mordecai M. Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood

Mordecai M. Kaplan (1881-1983) was one of the most influential Jewish thinkers of the 20th century. We believe that his thought may be even more important in the 21st century.

Aaron and the Wrath of God

Aaron and the Wrath of God gives teachers an opportunity to explore the parallels between guiding children as a parent and guiding them as a teacher. It is also is an exploration of three different (highly interrelated yet distinct) goals for our teaching about God. The story can stand on its own as a Rudyard Kipling like “just so story.” It also can be an occasion for digging more deeply into our own assumptions about good teaching about God as suggested in the analysis that follows the story.
