(scenarios) What would you do?

  1. You don’t agree with your youth group’s president.  She makes decisions you don’t like. What do you do?
  2. Your best friend wants to change the school policy about which social media platforms you can access during the school day.  You agree. How do you make this change?


What Does This Parshah Mean to Me?

  1. What were the arguments that Korach and his followers make in opposition to Moses and Aaron?  What do you think?
  2. Why do you think that after listening to Korach, Moses called for the other two rebel leaders to state their case?
  3. What was Moses’ reaction after listening to Korach, Dathan, and Abiram?
  4. Compare Moses and Korach.  How would you describe them and their positions?  What do you learn from this story of rebellion?
  5. In the portion, the firepans that the rebels used became holy.  One explanation is that they were to be a reminder of the cost of rebellion.  What object or symbol reminds you from doing what is wrong?
