8th/9th jewish memory and Me: the Holocaust

Weekly, on Wednesdays 6:15-8:15 including dinner
Grades 8-9
While learning about the Holocaust, teens will be empowered to “strive to be human.” This workshop will be much more than learning facts about Holocaust. It will be a sensitive learning experience to help Jewish teens develop connections to and ownership of memory, learn how to take those memories and bring it into their lives through their choices and actions.

Weekly, on Wednesdays 6:15-8:15 including dinner
Grade 10
Our tenth graders are coming into their own, thinking about their futures, testing boundaries and exploring their identities. It's a time and place to explore their feelings and experiences with Jewish community, values, and wisdom. They'll wrestle with the challenging stuff now that they're really ready for it! In the spring, students go to Washington D.C., along with dozens of other confirmation classes, to participate in the L’taken Social Justice Seminar, sponsored by the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. At the end of the weekend, they will head  to Capitol Hill to lobby their representatives in Congress. At the end of the year, the cohort leads an EPIC worship ritual in which they share their opinions and commitments, confirming who they are as Jews. L’taken Social Justice Seminar is Friday-Monday, February 10-13.
