TEEN BEIT MIDRASH

Teen Beit Midrash of Hebrew College is a pluralistic and inclusive after school program for teens in grades 8-12.  The program brings together a dedicated and diverse group of Jewish teens who are excited to delve into traditional Talmudic text and find contemporary meaning relevant to our lives. We open the library  of our Jewish heritage to help teens understand our multi-voiced, nuanced tradition and gain the skills to reach their own conclusions. Together we learn, build community, and have fun.

We are pleased to offer three program options:

 

HEBREW COLLEGE’S JEWISH TEEN FOUNDATION OF GREATER BOSTON (JTFGB)

JTFGB is a year-long program for Jewish high school students with different denominational backgrounds from across the greater Boston area. Together, they develop strong leadership and communication skills, learn the ins and outs of professional philanthropy and grant-making through a Jewish lens, and allocate grants to effect real change in the causes they care about most.
