Teens: The Middle East Narrative

Explore the “Map of Israel” in relation to the players involved in the evolution of the State of Israel.

*FREE PIZZA
**Facilitated by Rabbi Greene and the BJTI staff

We will look at the story of the primary players of Israel and how they relate to each other theologically, geo-spacially, and culturally to help participants determine their own positions and where they fit in to this narrative.

WBJTI Logohen: April 14th, 2016 @ 6pm-8pm

Where: Congregation Har Hashem

Consistency: Weekday (Thursday)

Eligibility: 9-12 Grade

Our Offbeat Exploration series for Spring 2016 focuses on the personal journey, “Who am I and where do I fit in?” Although you do not have to participate in all three series it is highly encouraged.  Within each 2-part series we will delve into understanding our own identities on a deeper level and how we are connected to the greater community at large. While keeping multiple Jewish lenses in mind throughout we will use several modalities such as media and technology, hands on activities, cross-cultural discussions, and peer led activities.
