CourageOmetz lev

The Hebrew term for courage, ometz lev, literally means strength of heart. The Jewish definition of courage goes beyond physical ability. Throughout the Bible, strong, courageous hearts are often needed to overcome fears, try new things, and travel to unfamiliar places.

What is something that once frightened you but now no longer does? How did you overcome your fear?

Talk about what types of courage your family values, such as standing up for people who can’t stand up for themselves, doing the right thing even when it’s hard, and speaking up.
