Jewish learning Teen Beit Midrash Students Combine Creativity & Text
Is squid ink Kosher? Can you time travel on shabbos? Students in Hebrew College’s Teen Beit Midrash program tackle these questions together using creativity, text study, and their pluralistic perspectives, and learn about themselves and their classmates in the process. At the end of the year, students do hazarah, meaning they review all that they have learned during the year. Then they identify the themes of the year, pick their favorite quotes, and make their own Talmud of the quotes. This spring, Teen Beit Midrash students also honed their creativity to create promotional videos about their program (watch Judy’s video below), encouraging other teens who love to learn to come together to explore big questions and issues through Talmud.
