- 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.
From the ghettos and pogroms of the Middle Ages, to the concentration camps in Europe, to Islamic terror all across the world today, Jews have been beaten, attacked, and singled out for destruction. The hateful rhetoric on college campuses, in the media, and all over the Internet seems to get worse by the day. Even modern Israel lives under constant threat and has to fight for the right to exist. Why is it that ever since the dawn of the Jewish nation, there have been people who tried to destroy us? For what reason or purpose are the Jews still here? Would the world be any different if the Jews didn’t exist?
Judaism has a lot to say about questions of ethics and morality. In this series, teens will explore ethical questions and moral dilemmas that arise in different areas of life, often comparing and contrasting Jewish and secular law and values. In this course, teens will be challenged to solve some perplexing, hotly contested problems. Does my moral obligation to help the poor mean that I have to give a needy person an iPad or a TV—in addition to food and clothing? Is it ethical to take a sick person off of life support if that is what the person wants? Can I keep money or objects that I find on the street?
From time immemorial, brave young individuals have stood up to make a difference and change the world—for good. Young people around the world volunteer their time, raise money and awareness, and take concrete steps to fix real problems in their communities. What drives us to fix the world? Where does this inner passion come from? What values and beliefs does Judaism promote that we can use to effect change?
