Teen Learning at CBI

Our CBI Teen program offers a variety of interactive, engaging and compelling programs for students post b’mitzvah in grades 8-12. Each provides continuing connection with the synagogue and with Judaism, while engaging with material at an advanced level. Teens can choose whether they prefer a more academic or social-action oriented program or mix and match!

TICHON 8-10 is our monthly Jewish learning program for youth in grades 8 through 10. Meeting the 2nd Tuesday of (almost) every month, the topic this year is Jewish History: That Happened When? Putting Everything You Learned Into Context!

TICHON 11-12 has a series of special programs with Rabbi Isenberg. Check the currently scheduled programs below!

All teens are invited to work as Madrichim Teen Assistants in our Blanche Bayar Religious School. Madrichim partner with our teachers to play key roles in the classroom, while gaining valuable work experience. Madrichim receive training and are paid for their time. Madrichim help with office tasks and, most importantly, work with students in the classroom.

In addition to the formal programs, 8th through 12th graders are encouraged to participate in our Kadima and USY youth groups as well. Click here for more details!

Join with a friend! CBI Teen programming is open to congregants as well as friends of CBI and BBRS families and the greater Jewish community.
