Family and Teen Education Program

 

TEEN PROGRAM:

 

Teen engagement programThe teen program includes texts to spark discussions, suggestions for increasing meaning in ritual observances, and examples of volunteer opportunities for each topic that can inspire the group towards creative ideas for social action.  It is flexible, to fit different levels of maturity and knowledge, and very easy to implement.

 

 

Upon completion of the 9-month program, through our partnership with Jewish National Fund, participants have trees planted in Israel in their honor. Each participant receives a tree certificate.

The program is great for youth groups, confirmation classes, eighth graders - post bar/bat mitzvah, and even clubs in secular high schools.

It’s a great, hands-on leadership program:

Social Action opportunities

Builds self-esteem

Builds Jewish identity

Builds Jewish Literacy

Connects with other Jewish teens and with the community

Provides opportunities for positive personal expression

 

 

The text study follows the same nine topics as the adult Chai Mitzvah program. For more robust text study, teens can use the Adult Sourcebooks. For lighter study and great activities, use the very user-friendly Teen Supplement booklet.

FAMILY EDUCATION:

 

family education programThe Family Education program includes text study, social action, and finding new meaning in ritual practice. It is flexible, to fit families with different age children, and very easy to implement.

 

Upon completion of the 9-month program, through our partnership with Jewish National Fund, families have trees planted in Israel in their honor. Each family receives a tree certificate.

 

Chai Mitzvah for Families is a great way to engage families, for example:

5th and 6th graders and their parents as they enter into the pre-bar/bat mitzvah years - a great  
 tool for synagogue retention and setting the stage for a meaningful Bar/Bat mitzvah

Chavurah groups

Family education programming

New member synagogue families

Interfaith families

 

The text study follows the same nine topics as the adult Chai Mitzvah program, and is geared towards families, with texts that are most relevant and easy to follow. The booklet also contains activities that bring the topic to life, and links to additional information. Leaders choose the activities that best suit each group.
