JLI Teens Standalone Courses

JLI Teens provides advanced Jewish involvement for high school students by challenging teenagers to incorporate Jewish thought into their everyday life. Each series incorporates ethics, philosophy, faith, history, community service, current events, and textual studies

  • Active Learning and Skills We give teenagers a place to explore, grow, and participate through: Critical thinking, challenging activities, text analysis, public speaking, mock debates and driving questions, building their personal conviction and passion
  • Raise a Leader While modern culture promotes conformity, we encourage teens to discover their own voice by sharing their opinions and challenging the ideas presented – inspiring them to become leaders instead of followers.
  • A Key to Success Academic performance improves when students enter university with a healthy sense of self and a clarity of purpose. We provide the forum for students to think deeply about themselves and build a strong foundation of beliefs and values.

Why I Love Israel

Is there something wrong with the way Israel has conducted itself in its attempts to bring peace to the Middle East? Why does it seem that Israel has so many enemies? How important is Israel to me, anyway? Your teen will take a journey; where they will virtually travel through the Holy Land, learn of the history, meaning and holiness of this ancient country. They will see how this faraway place is their home, and how their Jewish identity is connected to it.

Hollywood Idol

This course will analyze how the culture of Hollywood subliminally influences our society. It offers teens the opportunity to discover how every movie—every story—is inherently a message and commentary on life. They will be challenged to consider and think deeply about these messages, whether they really agree with them, and how these values compare with those of our tradition. 

Complicated Me

How well do you know yourself? Do you know why you think the way you think? Is your personality a product of your upbringing or are you an independent, self-made person? Why do you feel pious one day and heretical the next? These and other questions will be explored as teens discuss and debate what makes us happy, successful, better at relationships, able to cope with stress, and more.
