After many years of discussion, planning and collaboration, the high schools of Beth Sholom Congregation and Adath Jeshurun have formally become one school called the Jewish Teen Collaborative. It opened September 2011 with approximately 80 students in grades 7-10 and it provides multiple cutting edge and meaningful learning opportunities which nurture and inspire our teens.
JTC's mission is simple: to educate our teens as they develop their Jewish identity. Through a process of formal and experiential education, students will deepen their awareness and appreciation of Judaism and be better able to bring Jewish values and practice to their daily lives both now and in the future.
Teens spend Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings learning with their peers in and out of the classroom through a combination of formal and informal education.
Please see the sample schedule below.
7:00–7:30 Chat Room
7:30–8:30 Electives such as: Hebrew language, Yoga and Spirituality, Text Study Through Action and Parashat HaShavua
9:30–10:20 Core Classes such as Ethics, Bible, Modern Israel, Conservative Judaism and Law
