Teens and Tweens 2018-19

Our programs, designed especially for 8th and 9th graders, offer a new way to think and feel about being Jewish in our world. We take the Jewish educational experience to the next level where teens explore their values, leadership skills and how to address the difficult questions they face every day.


TELEM is a program in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of Greater Boston and the Minuteman Arc of Concord MA. TELEM students and educators will work with our partner organization Minuteman Arc to help support the social needs of adults with developmental disabilities living in group homes. The class includes learning about individuals with different abilities through text study, activities, guest speakers, and movies. We will visit residents of the Minuteman Arc in their group home, where students will build friendships and create memories through conversation and weekly activities. TELEM offers the opportunity for students to develop their leadership skills and ability to connect with people from all walks of life. Teens in Grades 8-12 are eligible to participate. Meeting Times: Monday Evening 6:00-8:00.
