Teen Scene 2020-2021

TEEN SCENE 2020 - 2021

This year our Teen Scene class will start virtually and  will meet 10 times during the school year.  When it is safe, we will be meeting together at Beth Shalom.  This year's topic will be Chai Mitzvah  taught by Marsha Fish using the Chai Mitzvah curriculum for Teens.   

 

OVERALL VIEW OF CLASS:

Marsha Fish has been teaching the nationally acclaimed Chai Mitzvah Program to adults in our kehillah for many years. We are thrilled that she is now going to impart her wisdom and humor to our teens. This year Marsha will teach our Teen Scene class using the Chai Mitzvah Teen Curriculum. This curriculum features nine beautifully illustrated sourcebooks featuring texts to spark meaningful discussions on topics such as Rites of Passage, Mindfulness and Conscious Living, Judaism and the Environment, and more. Each class meeting covers one of the topics. The texts are both traditional and contemporary, in Hebrew and English. Every sourcebook includes links to videos, music, apps and more. As we study the various texts, it will help the teens to examine their opinions and ideas about various subjects.  In discussing and learning from each other it is our hope that the future leaders of our Jewish community will be an influence for good and justice in the years to come. 

STANDARD TOPICS:

Rites of Passage, Tzedakah/Philanthropy, individual and Community, Interpersonal Relationships, Mindfulness/Conscious Living, Adding New Insights and Meaning to the Passover Seder, Israel and the Jewish Spirit, Gratitude: Modim Anachnu Lach, and Judaism and the Environment.
