MC Teens Tikkun (grades 8-12)
FVJC will be partnering with JTConnect to provide bi-monthly programming at FVJC. This exciting partnership enables our teens to choose between various elective topics at any given time, furthering their Jewish learning, allowing them to benefit from the expertise of JTConnect’s established faculty, and ultimately giving them access to the broad array of social programs offered by JTConnect to other Jewish teens throughout the greater Hartford area.
Jon Rubin (a fellow congregant, past President, and father of two current MC Teens) and Todd Cooperman (another fellow congregant and father of two) are members of JTConnect’s Board of Directors and serve, along with Rabbi Bekah, on an advisory board as liaisons for the program at FVJC.
The JT Connect schedule consists of, one Sunday morning and one Wednesday evening per month. On Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:30pm our teens will dine together with their friends and then learn with engaging educators in a variety of captivating classes geared toward their interests. From cooking to theology, there is something for everyone! On Sunday mornings from 9:00-11:30am, teens will explore current social justice issues from a Jewish lens. Teens will put their passion into action by working directly with people and communities in need.
Even if you are on the fence about whether or not you are interested in participating in the program, I HIGHLY encourage you to still come try it out! Below are the dates for the rest of the year.
By combining teens’ intellectual curiosity with volunteer projects, we hope to create a community of young adults who care about the world around them and who actively take part in the project of Tikkun Olam – Repairing the World.
We are looking forward to an exciting year of MC Teen/JTConnect collaboration!
