I am value-able. Ani Ba’al Middot
What are values? Values are the ideas and beliefs we hold that capture what truly matters to us as individuals, as families, as communities and as citizens of our country and the world. Values shape our behaviors, actions, and attitudes toward ourselves and others. They also determine how we spend time, make consistent decisions, and committed actions. There are different types of values, such as: ethical/moral, religious and political values.
What makes a value Jewish?
There are certain values which are generally universal, such as love, peace, and helping those in need. In these cases, a certain depth and breadth is revealed through the study of various Jewish sources. For example, most would agree that gossip hurts others and should be avoided. Jewish texts and prayers move the discussion to the power of words to create and destroy. We are strongly cautioned to consider the potential impact of our words before we speak them.
