KEY QUESTIONS:

PART ONE
Morality: Keeping It Real
What is ethics and why is it so important to our lives? How do I determine what is right and what is wrong? What is "moral relativism" and what is its significance to ethics? What is Judaism's unique perspective on morality?

PART TWO
Props to Parents

They brought you into the world, they changed your diapers and earned your respect, but parents are also humans that make mistakes. Must you still honor their wishes when they want you to do something that you feel is wrong? How about abusive parents, do they deserve the same respect?

PART THREE
Beating Bullying

Bullying is bad, but is there anything wrong with being a bystander? Why do people bully others? What are the long-term repercussions for the victim? And what are our responsibilities as Jews to protect the vulnerable and promote a loving and caring society?
PART FOUR
All About Forgiveness

Should you forgive someone even if they aren't sorry? Is it right, or even healthy, to forgive unconditionally? When should you put someone else's needs first, and when should
you not?

PART FIVE
True-Blue Jew

Is it okay to lie to your best friend when the truth would hurt? Is there ever a reason that would make lying okay? (Hint: The answer is likely to surprise you!)

PART SIX
My Privacy

It's your parents' duty to protect you, but does that give them license to read your text messages? Is it okay to spy on your friends? Do you have the right to your own space and privacy?
