Noseh: Appreciating Hashem through nature
Goal: To teach the chanichim that
1. Natural beauty is a way to appreciate God in the world
2. Succot is a time-out we take to reconnect to nature, in order to appreciate Hashem’s wondrous creation.
3. While appreciating nature, we also need to appreciate our dependence on Hashem.
The point of this shiur is to teach the chanichim about various leadership qualities, and to show them examples in Tanach where these leadership skills are used by different characters. Therefore the goals of this shiur are threefold:
To discuss with the chanichim various traits a leader should possess and why these traits are so crucial.
To use the examples in Tanach as jumping off points for discussing contexts when these traits should be put into use. Try to think of other examples in their lives where this particular leadership trait would need to be employed.
To show the chanichim how the Tanach is not boring, but active and engaging, full of situations and characters that we can relate to and identify with. The characters in Tanach should be seen by the chanichim as “leader role models” that they can identify with and strive to imitate.
