This first-of-its-kind Prozdor summer course we will meet once a week (for five weeks) with a diverse group of Jewish teenagers from many Jewish backgrounds and communities to discuss big topics, including dating, Shabbat, fasting, women and Judaism (with guest speaker), pluralism and the question, “What does it mean to be a Jew?”
As a facilitator, Rabbi David Ehrenkranz, who has taught at Prozdor and Maimonides High School since 1996, will encourage authentic and open dialogue between and among all teenagers in the class.
The class will usually begin with a brief introduction to the topic as well as a short text, and then all of the students will discuss the issue at hand as it relates to them in both a personal and interpersonal way. There will be occasional guest speakers who will also join us to help invigorate the discussions and inspire genuine and meaningful dialogue.
This course meets weekly on Thursdays, 7:30-8:30 p.m., July 2, 9, 16, 23. Teens are welcome to join mid-session.+ More... - Less...
