Mekom Torah Teens
Opening Session: September 22, 2019 at BETH ISRAEL!! 1:00-2:30, pizza from 12:30.
The Mekom Torah teen program is centered on honest and mature discussions about Judaism. This is a chance to get past the kid's version of Jewish conversation and find out what has kept people interested for 2500 years. Our sessions are relaxed and informal, but in every one we end up discussing Big Questions and Surprising Ideas, with a Jewish perspective and a contemporary edge.
Here are some questions we might explore:
Topics of discussion will follow the interests of the participants.
There is no “homework” -- this is about learning, sharing, and discussion. Rabbi Helen will offer students her knowledge of the history, texts, and traditions of our people, and her love of the deep and colorful culture of the Jews. Her promise is to take all students seriously and treat them with respect and honesty.
Tuition is $250 for the year; financial aid is available to assist those in need.
If you are a new student, please register by August 31, 2019, using this registration form. If you are a returning student, simply indicate your intention and send your tuition or be in touch!
