The Adventure Rabbi Teens group meets once a month. Their activities are focused on fun and friendship. “Our teens have experienced their share of stress and trauma,” explains Rabbi Korngold, the founder of Adventure Judaism. “We want them to know that every month we offer a fun activity for them to do, with a group of Jewish friends.”
The group is led by a parent, Amy Scheff, and her son Madden Scheff. In November, the group went to an Escape Room and in October, they made glass-fuzed mezuzot at Crackpots in Longmont. December will be ice skating in Lafayette.
The teens’ group is free for members of the Adventure Judaism congregation and just $50 for non-members. Students pay for the activities, but they are highly subsidized by a generous grant from the Sidney Stern Memorial Trust. Thanks to the grant and the Scheffs’ work, the program has grown exponentially. Learn more about the program and register here.
“This program shares goals with all of our other programs; we want the teens to love being Jewish and to make Jewish friends. If we succeed in that, everything else will follow.”Rabbi Korngold
