The Teen Cohort at Adventure Rabbi recently had a day of summer this January at the Apex Center Waterpark. Our exuberant group of teens splashed their winter blues away in the enormous water area. They found endless entertainment in the slides, dumping buckets, lazy river, and leap-pad cross.
Our teen group, while new this year, is unbelievably close-knit. All students currently in the program are recent graduates from the Adventure B’nai Mitzvah Class, although a Bar or Bat Mitzvah with the Adventure Rabbi Program is not a requirement for being in the Teen Program.
Perhaps this group is so cohesive because the Adventure B’nai Mitzvah Class not only teaches the requirements for becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, but also challenges the participants by requiring them to be kind to one another, branch out with their friendships, and sometimes step outside of their comfort zone. As a result of this training, our current teen group is thriving.
Do you know a teen who would like to make incredible Jewish connections with others in the community? Our teen group may be the perfect place! For more information, you can e-mail our Adventure Educator and teen group leader Elaine Barenblat at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can check out our website here: http://www.adventurerabbi.org/congregation/Teen.htm.
Since half of the school year is already gone, we even have a special discounted rate for our remaining programming!
I hope to see you for our next adventure!
