Teen Education

At Beth Emet we are dedicated to providing teen education that encourages community, spirituality, responsibility and deep thinking. Our programs engage teens on a variety of levels and provide an invigorating Jewish learning experience that they want to be a part of.

Beth Emet has educational programs for teens of all ages, beginning with our 7th grade Gesher experience through our 12th grade Kabbalat Torah program.  All programs have a strong experiential component, an emphasis on social justice, and encourage students to authenitcally explore Judaism and build Jewish identity.

Students who participate in our education system develop a deep love of and commitment to Judaism, a sense of self and community, the ability to speak thoughtfully on questions of God, Torah and Israel, and make great friends!
