As part of our commitment to engage our community with a modern spiritual, educational and social Jewish experience that uplifts our lives, we have reimagined our teen learning program. One aspect of our teen learning program is Hebrew High, which offers opportunities for teens to continue exploring their personal Jewish identities while also connecting to their local, national, and worldwide Jewish community.

On the first and third session of each month, we have partnered with Beth El Synagogue to explore what it means to be Jewish in Omaha and throughout the world. Through conversations with the clergy and high-energy activities, these collaborative sessions help to broaden our horizons and create a wider community. Each one is different from the other, helping our teens to learn more. Read the letter from Temple's Jennie Gates Beckman & Beth El's Mark Kelln.

On the second and fourth session of each month, the Temple Israel teens meet to continue their education. These sessions provide a perfect blend of learning, social justice, and social time. On the first Wednesday of the month we will meet with Jay to learn about "Jews in the Media". We will explore the representation, perception, and stereotypes of Jews in things movies, the news, and social media through discussions and hands-on activities.

The fourth Wednesday will allow our teens an opportunity to build ties with the greater community and practice tikkun olam. Our Mitzvah Corps will ground our teens in the Jewish texts and values upon which our community i community service. Not only does this allow students to feel connected and helpful, it also gives them an opportunity to earn volunteer hours in a fun way.

For a more detailed and printable "blueprint", click here. Our curriculum focuses on relevant Jewish lifestyle topics, offering the students the opportunity to share thoughts, and even debate with their peers. Our unique games, discussions, and camp-style programming create an environment that welcomes questions and exploration about what it means to be Jewish.
