Justice/Tzedakah is a new installment in artist-educator Hanan Harchol‘s animated series, Jewish Food for Thought, which teaches Jewish ethics through thought-provoking animated conversations between Harchol and his Israeli parents.
In this animation, Hanan and his father have a thoughtful exchange about the true meaning of the word tzedakah. Accompanied by an original study guide written by 2010 Covenant Award recipient Beth Huppin, this content is perfect for engaging students and learners of all ages in questions about the obligations and understandings of tzedakah, and its myriad implications.
Hanan Harchol is a New York based teacher, filmmaker, animator, artist, and classical guitarist. Harchol was born in Kibbutz Kinneret, Israel, and moved to the US at the age of two.
Beth Huppin has enjoyed teaching Judaics to adults and children of all ages, in formal and informal settings. Most recently, she was the founding director of Project Kavod, a unique Jewish education program at Jewish Family Service, Seattle. She is a recipient of a 2010 Covenant Award for Excellence in Jewish Education.
