Starting in the Fall of 2013, Am Haskalah will offer a Post B’nai Mitzvah program for teens age 13-15. Students will meet one afternoon a month to explore issues of Jewish identity, belief and practice, particularly as they relate to young adults. A youth leader will guide discussions, activities and field trips, with a focus on experiential learning.
For more information, contact Kristin Illick. (kristinillick@hotmail.com).

This program is being offered in conjunction with the Reconstructionist Movement’s TEL program for youth:

“The TEL (Teens: Experience and Learning) program is designed to enable teens to build upon past learning in their own Jewish communities and frame it within a larger Reconstructionist context. In archeology, a tel is a hill created when different civilizations live and rebuild in the same spot, creating layers of experience.”

For more information on the Teen Program, or to enroll, contact am.haskalah.office@gmail.com
