Teaching Iyov in a High School Setting

by: Rabbi Maury Grebenau

 

Abstract: As my months of teaching sefer Iyov came to a close I began to reflect on
how happy I was that I had followed through on my decision to teach Iyov. Although
Iyov is not a part of most high school curricula there are many reasons to include
Iyov in a high school curriculum. Sefer Iyov provides a firm foundation for discussing
a number of fundamental hashkofic topics which are dealt with directly in sefer Iyov.
One of the first activities I did to introduce the sefer was to make a list on the board
of questions that the students had about G-d and our relationship with G-d. Many of
the issues mentioned were ones that we would deal with in our study of sefer Iyov.
