"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" opens in movie theaters today. Will it just be a magical adventure that entertains us, or are there deeper lessons that our Jewish souls can learn? Below are seven middot (Jewish values) found in Pirkei Avot and in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," the first book in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. You can use these themes as a guide as you enjoy the movie.
