“You and I can change the world”. An innovative home-based teen empowerment and outreach program where groups of 7th and 8th graders meet for 2 hours every other week in the comfort of a local private home to explore their Jewish identity in relation to themselves, their peers, family, community and the world. Social events, overnights, social action, leadership and more! New enhancements to the program include a young, dynamic and engaging female teacher, non-member rates, teen Shabbaton overnight, and opportunities to earn community service credit. Classes forming from Thousand Oaks to Sherman Oaks.
Introducing a course on what high school doesn’t teach and Jewish values do. Teens will explore their spirituality, examine their morality and create a positive teen community. Each class is experiential and taught through pop culture, self-discovery topics and interactive activities. Confirmation meets every other week for fifteen classes and is co-taught by Rabbi Ron Li-Paz and Ari Cohen. Dinner included.
A Jewish youth group for teens, led by teens. The perfect outlet for a Saturday night. A place to meet new friends where everyone is welcomed and valued. Where there is no “in” or “out” just IN. Jew Crew is for 6th-8th graders and meets once a month for social events, and once a month with parents and siblings for community service projects. Come join the crew.
