Highlights include: Set pieces from Star Trek: The Original Series, including the navigation console. Artifacts and props from the various Star Trek TV series and films, including an original series tricorder, communicator, and phaser; a Borg cube from the film Star Trek: First Contact; a Klingon disruptor pistol from Star Trek: The Next Generation; and tribbles from Star Trek: The Original Series. Spock’s tunic worn by Leonard Nimoy; Lt. Uhura’s dress worn by Nichelle Nichols; Khan garments past and present, including the open-chest tunic worn by Ricardo Montalbán and the costume worn by Benedict Cumberbatch in the 2013 reboot; Captain Picard’s uniform worn by Patrick Stewart; plus, a Borg costume, the alien Gorn, and more.

    • Mitzvah Class: Lashon HaRa: Jewish Ethics of Speech

In this series, we take a deep dive into one Mitzvah at a time, exploring the traditional teachings about that mitzvah and applying the concept to our own lives. In this series on lashon hara (the laws of speech), we will use text study, discussion, and examples from students lives to explore the Jewish ideal of lashon hara, the practice of avoiding negative speech. How does Judaism teach us to speak, what do we do with negativity, and when and how can we say things which are… not exactly positive? Week 1: What is lashon hara? Lashon Hara is more than just “gossip,” it is negative speech. We will explore the definition of this term, learn about some examples from the Torah, and think about examples in our own lives, and consider the impact lashon hara can have. Week 2: So what can you say? We are surrounded by negative speech in movies, news, and our lives. In this session we will look at some contemporary examples, both from media and our lives, and evaluate them in terms of the 7 conditions necessary for relating negative information. Week 3: So what can I say? In this session, we will explore Jewish teachings on what one can say in place of lashon hara, and consider how these teachings might play out in scenarios from students’ lives. This session will equip students with alternatives to saying lashon hara. We will also act out the story of “Salty Soup” (a classic chofetz chayyim story), exploring it dramatically and also discussing its lesson. This will give students a “deep dive” into one classic and memorable example of lashon hara. read less
