Congregation Beth Elohim Religious School

Teens

We envision Jewish education as a life-long process. After B'nai Mitzvah, our Teen Program provides an opportunity for students to broaden their understanding of Jewish thought, practice and contemporary experiences. Our goal is for students to explore Judaism and Jewish topics through age appropriate discussions and experiences, for students to continue to build community and sustain relationships, and for students to have a choice and a greater stake in their own Jewish learning. In addition to weekly classes, each year students will participate in a trip with a focus on Jewish learning and exploration.

During the 2022-2023 school year the students will meet for two hours each week beginning by eating lunch together.  The 8-10th grade students will meet on Sundays from 11:30-1:30pm and will focus on the question of Jewish Identity Through Jewish Culture:  Who am I as a Jewish person?  Who are the other Jewish people in the world?  How do we come together as a Jewish community?  Through food, music, dance and other cultural exploration we will answer these and other questions.

Confirmation: 
For students in the 10th grade, the year will conclude with a confirmation ceremony.  Students will have a chance to share their own views on their personal Judaism and confirm that they are a Jewish adult who is taking the next step in their Jewish learning and growing.
