We invite the class of 2024
to be a part of TLC!
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.

Here's how our zayin students can get involved this spring!

Taste of Madrichim
Sunday, May 5, 9:45-11:00 a.m.
Madrichim (Teachers Assistants) in 8th-12th grade serve as role models, working with teachers to create a positive environment throughout the Kulanu Learning Program.

Learn if this program will be of interest to your teen for next year in 8th grade! The program will include a workshop led by Robin Wald, and feature 7th graders as reading buddies with younger children.
Tuesday, May 7 and 14, 6:00-7:45 p.m.
Nosh and Drash is a safe space for open, judgement-free dialogue to discuss current events and the world for 8th-12th graders. Dinner is included.

Current 7th graders are welcome to stay after regular Zayin class for dinner to see if they'll enjoy this program next year.
Tuesday, May 14, 4:00-6:00 p.m.
Rosh Hodesh & Shevet, powered by Moving Traditions
It’s not easy being a teenager. This is why Bet Torah offers Rosh Hodesh (for young women) and Shevet (for young men). Once a month, in small peer groups with trained adult mentors, teens bond and have open conversations in a safe space. Teens who identify as transgender, nonbinary, gender fluid, or gender questioning can participate in a national online group, Tzelem .

Our Taste of Nosh and Drash and Moving Traditions programs will include an introduction to TLC for current 7th graders, followed by samples of Rosh Hodesh and Shevet for the young women and young men. We'll conclude the program with a brief "Nosh-style" discussion and pizza.
