We hope all Zayin students and their families will join us for this program.

We will join together through music, poetry and reflection to mourn and commemorate the loss.

TLC is our Teen Learning Community , Bet Torah's innovation in post-B'nei Mitzvah engagement.

At TLC, teens in 8th-12th grade explore their rich Jewish heritage and challenging modern lives through a variety of learning and community building programs. We offer teens flexible scheduling and ownership of their own education, ways to  KNOW BELONG , and  DO .

It’s not easy being a teenager. Even outside of school, the pressure is on, and issues like self-esteem, body image, competition, and relationships add to the noise. This is why Bet Torah offers Rosh Hodesh and Shevet Achim, powered by Moving Traditions. Once a month, in small peer groups with trained adult mentors, teens bond and have open conversations in a safe space. Groups have a positive and lasting impact on teens, empowering them to become strong, confident, and happy young adults.

Current zayin students and their parents are invited to join us for a taste of this program and parallel parent workshop explaining their significance.

Tweens who identify as girls and their parents are invited to a Taste of Rosh Hodesh. Sunday evening in April/ May. Details to follow.

Tweens who identify as boys and their parents are invited to a Taste of Shevet Achim . This parent workshop will feature Rabbi Brusso. Sunday evening in April/ May. Details to follow.

There is a national online group for teens who identify as transgender, nonbinary, gender fluid, or gender questioning.
