- Regular youth only gatherings (no more than 10 kids per group).
- Meet in people's homes - it's comfortable and way more relaxing and enjoyable. Kids just finished a long day at school. The last thing they want to do is go to (another) school.
- Customize a program that meets the needs and desires of your child/ren.
As they make their way to becoming Bar or Bat Mitzvah, we take them deep into the thrilling responsibility of caring for others and putting our values into action.
- Youth attend 2-4 sessions a month (no more than 10 kids per group).
- Families commit to attending at least one community gathering per month.
- Meet in people's homes, local cafes and other venues (determined in advance).
- Sessions will focus on unpacking the obligation we have to heal the world.
- Explore a variety of sources from ancient to modern.
- Participants will choose their own area to support: education, poverty, homelessness, etc.
- Each month we will take our learning to the streets.
Age 13 and up
This is a very highlighted moment for the person becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah and his/her parents. How can we mark this significant time in a meaningful way to promote continued engagement afterwards?
- Create your own customized path according to your child's interests.
- Pathways can range from traditional (chanting Torah, writing a d’var Torah, leading various prayers) to way out of the box (exploring art, culture, food, history, dance, politics, Israel, storytelling, science, sports, etc.) and any combination.
- Regular private sessions with a coach (between 45 and 60 minutes).
- We will work with you from start to finish crafting a pathway that is meaningful, relevant and fulfilling.
