Mussar Meets the Science of Character

I wanted to share a new resource inspired by Tiffany Shlain’s Periodic Table of Character Strengths.  Titled “Making Mensches Periodic Table”, I hope this poster will inspire discussion about how to develop Middot, character traits.  I’ve intentionally left it as an informational resource for you, your family, or your organization to utilize in whatever creative way you find relevant.

To get the creativity flowing, I’ve included some questions for camp’s to consider as they discuss organizational visioning, personal development for staff and campers, and ways for you or your staff turn these ideas into a program or initiative at camp.

I am continuing to develop additional educational resources surrounding this project.  If you would like to contribute any suggestions, please contact me or just comment below.  For those of you who missed Tiffany Shlain’s presentation at the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s Leaders Assembly, or just want a refresher, you can view The Science of Character (8 min.)here Please let me know how you use this.
