TEEN PROGRAMS AT ADAT ARI EL

Kitah Zayin | Tuesdays, 6:00-8:00pm
7th Grade

Continues the learning done in Kesher, with an expanded curriculum on what it means to be Jewish in the 21st century. In Kitah Zayin, we ask the fundamental question of, “why be Jewish?” This will be explored through Jewish history, art, and testimonials. We also are excited to work with the David Labkovski Project this year which you can find more info about here.

Derech Academy | Tuesdays from 6:00-8:00pm
8th & 9th Grade

Derech, meaning path or road in Hebrew, Academy goes further and deeper into Jewish learning. Students will be exposed to the Jewish calendar, cultural practices,and Jewish texts through Mussar (Jewish ethics and morals) and Hasidut (Jewish mysticism). This in turn creates a balanced and well-rounded human being. By the end of the year, students will have learned Jewish ethics, morals, and philosophy and how they can be implemented into their daily lives. 

Trana & Ronald Labowe Confirmation/Seminar Institute | Tuesdays, 6:00-8:00pm

Taught by Rabbi Schuldenfrei, this experience will follow the journey through the book of Shemot (Exodus) in a hevruta-style (partner) text study. Throughout the year, the class will also engage in Shemot themed art project with longtime Adat member, Barbara Bressler, which will conclude with a ceremony during our Shavuot celebration.
