Teens come to Prozdor at Hebrew College for a chance to explore and study Jewish thought, practice, history, politics, social issues, and Modern conversational Hebrew with teens from across the Boston region. Prozdor students come from over 20 local congregations and all affiliations to form one pluralistic community where teens cultivate lifelong friendships and a commitment to Judaism into college and beyond. In addition to Prozdor’s teen-driven curriculum, Prozdor students participate in service trips, learn from renowned scholars and visiting speakers, and are guaranteed a spot in all Prozdor Immersives, a deep dive into arts, change-making, and innovation three times a year.

Central to Prozdor’s mission are:

  • Excellence in teaching
  • A rigorous text-based and hands-on curriculum of Judaic and Hebrew studies
  • A commitment to service, menschlichkeit, and tikkun olam
  • Nurturing a committed, energized, and diverse teen community who own their Jewish education

Prozdor sparks a genuine interest in Jewish history, Jewish arts, and other academics, and it has completely restructured my worldview, intellect, and identity…Generations of Prozdor students have unpacked perennial Jewish questions and have studied a wide spectrum of Jewish topics. Not every class a student takes is life-changing, but every student takes a life-changing class. That, in my opinion, is the trademark of Prozdor
