8-10 Curriculum

Tichon Bet Avraham

Jewish Education at TBA doesn’t end with a B’Mitzvah ceremony and a party. Learning is a lifelong endeavor and we continue our teen program with Tichon Bet Avraham for our 8th through 10th graders.

Our 8th and 9th graders alternate learning about Jewish history from the end of the Torah to the present time with learning about ethical issues, Israel, and a variety of current and relevant topics. There are lively discussions each Wednesday night as the students explore their own opinions and feelings about these topics. We start every class with pizza and schmoozing, an important part of the lives of our teens.

Our 10th grade Confirmation students explore topics of relevance with Rabbi Bloom that they were too young to explore in religious school, including Jewish learning on abortion, incest, and gender identity, among others.

Students in these grades will be contacted with the dates of the classes. Sessions meet on Wednesday evenings and include pizza dinner. All conclude in time for our teens to attend the weekly Wednesday night BBYO meetings.

Registration will open after the High Holy Days – stay tuned and watch for announcements regarding dates. You do not need to be a member of TBA to join any of these classes* or our BBYO boys or girls chapters.

Email Susan Simon for more information.
