From 1923 to today, Prozdor teens create thriving community through Jewish learning. Students help design, choose, and engage in courses taught by master educators at Hebrew College and in the community. Courses range from history to Israel, arts to halacha, social justice to Tanakh, and much more.

On my most recent Prozdor service trip, my group and I were sent to New York City to help rebuild houses and give back to a struggling community. During the span of four days, my friends and I helped retile a bathroom, install insulation to a living room, and help serve food at a local soup kitchen. It was these experiences where I could appreciate how important being a selfless person is, and how essential tikkun olam is to the world.
