Sing out to end the stigma surrounding mental health and record a song for our community! Over the course of 20 days during Mental Health Awareness Month, #JewishBostonTeens will learn about the Jewish connections to mental health and wellness and asynchronously record an a cappella arrangement, which will be shared with our community.

This experience will be led by guest artist Mayta Cohen with Brett Lubarsky, director of the Jewish Teen Initiative at CJP, with the JTI Peer Inclusion Fellows.

This experience requires two hours of virtual Zoom calls, in addition to learning and recording music. Our schedule will be:

  • May 10 (8-9 p.m.): Launch Meeting
  • May 11-18: Recording
  • June 1 (8 p.m.): Release Party

Mayta Cohen is a music major at Colorado College with a passion for a cappella and connecting to her Jewish roots. With international internship experience in vocal instruction, Mayta has performed in six different countries, arranges for several vocal ensembles throughout the U.S. and was a winner of the 2020 national Jewish music competition Jewish Star. (She also is an alumna of Gann Academy!)

This experience is open to teens in grades 8-12. A Zoom link will be sent prior to the start of the the program. Questions? Reach out to Brett Lubarsky.
