We are excited to announce a new Judaic study class and discussion group for teenagers, grades 8-12. Produced from the Jewish Learning Institute specifically for teenagers, we will study three courses, with six lessons each, on different thought provoking, contemporary issues. We will meet for 18 Sunday mornings, 10:45 AM until noon, beginning October 30th. A light brunch with bagels and cream cheese will be served. Visit www.JewishNewton.com/JLITEENS for more information.
JLI Teens provides advanced Jewish involvement for high school students by challenging teenagers to incorporate Jewish thought into their everyday life. Each series incorporates ethics, philosophy, faith, history, community service, current events, and textual studies
i. Active Learning and Skills We give teenagers a place to explore, grow, and participate through: Critical thinking, challenging activities, text analysis, public speaking, mock debates and driving questions, building their personal conviction and passion
ii. Raise a Leader While modern culture promotes conformity, we encourage teens to discover their own voice by sharing their opinions and challenging the ideas presented – inspiring them to become leaders instead of followers.
iii. A Key to Success Academic performance improves when students enter university with a healthy sense of self and a clarity of purpose. We provide the forum for students to think deeply about themselves and build a strong foundation of beliefs and values.+ More... - Less...
