Chai Five  - Teen Learning for 8 - 12th Grades

At Etz Chaim, our students in 8th - 12th grades have the opportunity to continue their Jewish learning experiences after Bar and Bat Mitzvah. Through our Chai Five - Teen Learning Program, our teens engage in discussions which will continue to strengthen their connection to the synagogue and the rabbi. This is accomplished through a variety of intriguing topics to broaden their Jewish view of themselves, the community and world around them.
 
This year, our 8th and 9th graders will virtually discuss Being Better: Performing Mitzot in the Time of the Pandemic.
 
Our Chai Five program has a Confirmation track for students in the tenth grade. This program focuses on questions the students have that are guided by the book, Tough Questions Jews Ask,  and will culminate with the students leading services during Pesach.
 
Our students in the 11th and 12th grades join with the USYers during a few "Wacky Wednesdays" throughout the year to discuss leadership, anti-Semitism on college campuses and maintaining a Jewish connection as they leave home and begin the next step in their journey.
