Packing for College is the next step in our WRTeen Jewish journey. During these busy years, the program offers a menu of options for students to choose from, based on where they are and the time they have available. As with every year, regular attendance in our program entitles students to ¼ credit in religion at Scarsdale High School.
Rabbi Blake, Cantor Kleinman, and our new Shinshinim, Young Ambassadors from Israel, will steer this effort, as we work to prepare our teens for life after high school. We start with an informal dinner, followed by a lively conversation and discussion. Please save the following Wednesday evenings beginning at 6:30pm.
Teens are invited to join our clergy for brunch and a “hot topic” conversation. All meetings will take place at the Odyssey Diner in Eastchester, on Sundays at 12:30pm.
Before the end of each quarter, JLL students can join their friends for study sessions at WRT! We will have snacks, social and quiet rooms, as well as clergy and JLL team members to be your sounding board.
Do you have a special memory of a teenager who made you feel welcome and connected you to Judaism?
This is your chance to be that person for someone else. Our wonderful Madrichim (student leaders) program offers multiple points of entry, from weekly teaching opportunities to monthly mentoring, and dreaming up new ways to share your talents with others. If you have a few hours to share, you could make a difference in our K-6 learners’ lives and the wider WRT community, while building your own leadership skills.
