IKAR Teens (anyone in 8th-12th grades) get to build a teen program together – to start something that has never been seen before at IKAR. When you became Bar or Bat Mitzvah, you became responsible for making the world a better place, for doing tikkun, for looking at the brokenness of our world and taking a hand in fixing it. Now we get to work together to build a program that will help us put our best intentions into action.

They will be trained to work as madrichim (teaching assistants) in our classroom and to work in our new, cutting-edge camp inspired program on Saturday mornings.

-work in pairs to assist teachers during Shabbat Limudim
-earn community service credits
-spend time with Limudim friends while learning valuable skills

The class meets from 4-6pm on Tuesdays (beginning with some social time and beginning the learning at 4:45) with in-class experience on Shabbat mornings from 9:15 am-12:15 pm. The class will include a social and social justice component as well. Ezra is available by emailing email@example.com.
