For more information on the following programs, or to register, please contact Jewish Experience Center Director at agreenwald@ourKI.org.
Each month, teen girls in this program come together to experience a special evening with their girlfriends and positive female role models. In honor of the new moon, these girls will be introduced to sacred and timeless Jewish rituals and activities (including art, drama and creative writing) which will help them process the things going on in their own lives. We will explore body image, friendships, relationships, competition, family challenges and stress. To find out more about this program, go to www.roshhodesh.org.
Join us as we go out into the community to participate in learning and action projects. During each session students will learn about the challenges facing our community and will actually engage in volunteer work to make a difference. Twenty hours of community service will be given for participation in this program.
Learn how to be a role model, develop your leadership skills and make a difference. This training is required for all students who want to be madrihim (teen assistants) for the first time during the following school year.
KITT is a teen philanthropy program comprised of teens who are inspired to learn about challenging social issues from a Jewish perspective. Teens will be given the opportunity to decide how to responsibly give up to $20,000 to organizations that they determine are most effective in making the world a better place. Admission to KITT is by application.
Students will learn about the struggles of African Americans to gain equality in the 1950s and 60s as well as discover how Jews were involved in the civil rights movement. Along with students from a predominantly African-American church, we will journey to Alabama and see firsthand where history was changed and what we can do to continue to fight for those who are oppressed. Students will meet for one Sunday before the trip and one after to plan and reflect upon the experience. A hands-on service component will be part of this experience, and community service credit will be given.
Through BBYO, teens can choose to socialize with friends, lead our Palisades Chapter, volunteer in the community, attend national and international conferences, join a BBYO sports league, learn more about Jewish culture and so much more! Volunteer advisors and staff members are there to offer encouragement and support. Payment for BBYO enrollment must be made separately from the KI Registration fees. Please bring your registration payment, made out to BBYO, to the Jewish Experience Center office, or sign up online at www.b-linked.org.
Teens who are part of the Madrihim program assist in Jewish Experience Workshops, the Outdoor Jewish Experience, 3G, Yahad 45 and Haverim. Ongoing supervision and training in leadership, classroom management and child development are part of the program. Teens may earn a stipend or community service credit. Acceptance into the program is by application and interview.
In confirmation, students and clergy wrestle with issues which resonate in their lives – “What is God?” “What does Judaism have to say about current issues?” “What role does Israel play in today’s world?” Confirmation is an opportunity for students to discuss real issues while learning wisdom and insights from Jewish tradition. Dinner is included.
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
