Privacy in the Digital Age (Course for Teens)
This course is intended for 9th-11th graders.
Over the course of the fall semester this text-based class will address core questions about what parts of our personal lives can be shared or collected and under what circumstances. We'll be working primarily from Tanakh, Mishnah, and Talmud sources. Learning will be through havruta, to help build students’ textual skills.
The core content for this class comes from Hadar's Maimonides Moot Court Competition case for this year, and students will have the chance to sign up for the competition.
Class time will also include dinner for students. This program is cosponsored by Luria Academy of Brooklyn, in partnership with Hannah Senesh Day School.
