Our 7th grade program is a requirement for a student’s becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, while also serving as a bridge year to usher our students into our Judea Teen Journeys (JTJ) High School program.
For these students in the midst of a milestone year, we call this class:
“How to Be a (Jewish) Adult”
- We ask our students to explore important components to Jewish identity: the connection to Israel, telling the story of the Holocaust, and contending with antisemitism.
- We engage our students in social-emotional learning through Jewish texts and ideas, including what it means to set personal boundaries while belonging part of a group.
- Using the Reform Movement’s historic commitment to social justice, we challenge our students to be curious about the world around them, and learn more about issues of injustice in our communities and our world.
All 7th Graders meet two times per month-- one Wednesday and one Sunday
