Students in grades 8 and 9 meet with the rabbi weekly to continue their Jewish learning as a young adult after becoming bar or bat mitzvah. In a discussion format with participation from all, we examine topics such as the weekly Torah portion, holidays, current events, ethics, and other topics of Jewish interest. We study Jewish texts, both ancient and modern, to appreciate the breadth and depth of Jewish wisdom and how that wisdom can help us in our lives today. At least one field trip is planned each year with the input of the students.
