Teen Track: Jewish Resistance (grades 8-12)
For 8th through 12th Graders
Twice monthly Shabbat afternoon sessions to analyze, emulate, and innovate on historical stories of Jewish resistance through time, up until America today. In partnership with the Religious Action Center in Washington, D.C. and Repair the World NYC, CBST teens will spend the year making "good trouble" and meeting great trouble-makers while studying, advocating, and taking action together. Taught by CRRI Dave Yedid and CBST Rabbis.
