Teen Track (Grades 8-9 and 10-12)

5779 Theme: Understanding Israel Now and Then - History. Culture. Peoples. It’s complicated. Find out why. Learn more. Dig in. Ask questions.
Taught by Rabbi Yael Rapport, Miya Rotstein, and David Moser

Where do we feel pulled and where do we feel pushed in our connections to Israel as Jews, as Americans, and as young adults? What will define our own relationship to Israel? What space do we hold as people who care about the dignity and safety of Israelis, Palestinians, and all who have a stake in a peaceful future? 

This twice-monthly program engages CBST’s teen cohorts (grades 8-9 and grades 10-12) in thoughtful exploration of Am Yisrael, Eretz Yisrael, and Medinat Yisrael: the people, the land, and the modern state of Israel. Through study of history, current events, and contemporary cultures, teen students will be encouraged to use their capacities for critical thinking as well as limitless dreaming to build their own personal connections to Israel and all it encompasses. 

Local field trips, connection with college students navigating their campus conversations, guest teachers from many perspectives, modern Hebrew, music, and even soccer will all serve as experiential components of this year-long course of study—the goal being to hold multiple truths in balance with finding our own way. Cohort breakfast and community Kiddush lunch will be provided.
