|September 9, 2016 - ו אלול תשעו||Posted by Rabbi Farbman under Featured, Main Page|
The Greater New Haven Jewish Community is excited to announce the launch of JTE, a new Jewish teen education program created “By Teens, For Teens.” A board of local Jewish teenagers have been working hard to create this program which is modeled after MAKOM, New Haven county’s previous and very successful Jewish teen education program.
Starting THIS TUESDAY, JTE will meet every Tuesday from 7-9 pm at the JCC. There will be a variety of classes offered, ranging from Israeli cooking to comparative religion, and everything in between. The session will run for approximately 12 weeks and students will be able to select two classes for the session. JTE is open to any and all Jewish 8th through 12th graders in the New Haven area, regardless of synagogue affiliation or previous Jewish education. The goal is to get all Jewish teens involved in learning more about the religion and culture.
