Teen Programs

Mechina and Yozma

Affectionately called "Jewsday," Mechina & Yozma are places where teens unplug from their busy lives and experience significant interactions panim el panim, face to face. Other obligations and homework are set aside for meaningful conversations, community building, and a lot of laughter. Through the support of their peers, educators, and clergy, teens feel connected and know they are part of a community who will support them as they navigate their teenage years.

Each Jewsday begins with a focus on community- we join together for dinner (teens favorites of course!) and start our learning with check-in... sharing our roses (highlights), thorns (lowlights), and buds (what we're looking forward to about the week). Teens reflect together and note their common experiences during this time, and it enables educators and fellow teens to know what each teen is bringing with them into the learning space. Each learning track aims to enhance each teen's evolving Jewish identity through interactive activities, courageous conversations, and thoughtful learning. We close each session with Siyyum, our closing circle, where we share evening prayers and reflect on our time together. 

Weekly Schedule:

6:00 Dinner (Panda, Pizza, Burgers, Chipotle, and more!) 

6:30 Grade-level or Track-based Check-in and Learning 

7:50 Siyyum

8:00 L'hitraot (See you next week!)
