  • 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.
  • Included: weekly Hebrew sessions (optional). 
  • Taught by CRRI Dave Yedid and CBST Rabbis.
