New studies show that the human brain is still growing and forming until we reach the age of twenty-five. It is between the ages of thirteen and twenty-five that we should continue to provide our children with the opportunities to examine, ponder, discuss and explore that Jewishness that we want to pass on to them. This is the greatest gift we can give our children: Our heritage, Our Jewishness.
Our Temple Beth Emet Jewish Teen Leadership program was created to serve this purpose. The classes are thought out to stimulate and help create a solid internal Jewishness our children can take with them into their adult lives. Our objective is to provide a broader Jewish view to the post Bar/Bat Mitzvah mind with the intent of fermenting thought and action.
