Chaverim - The JCC's Jewish Teen Program
JCC's Teen Program, Chaverim, continues to involve and serve Jewish teens (8-12 grades) from all synagogues in the county and the Jewish community at large. Our program provides a unique venue to inspire continued involvement in Jewish life. Members meet for weeknight dinner discussions, social activities and community events. The meetings provide Jewish teens an opportunity to experience social interactions and engaging discussions centered around Jewish ethical topics relating to teens and teen life.
Our program is augmented by our newly formed "Tikkun Olam" group, as well as "Jewish Identity Clubs" at various local High Schools, led by some of our students. Each year several students attend regional and national Jewish teen events, trips to Israel and to Washington DC as well. This year, a number of our teens will help staff our newly established JCC 'Parents Night Out' events for pre-teens and younger children.
Unaffiliated Jewish teens of any age are welcome to join and your children are our most powerful link to them. Please do not hesitate to share your experiences with Chaverim with other Jewish teens you know and their parents. Educating other teens about what is available to them, and encouraging their participation is a mitzvah for us all.
