Retreats at Camp Alonim:
Shabbat Experiences at Temple Judea:
We are excited to launch an entirely new religious school program for your tweens and teens entitled, “JTJ,” or the Judea Teen Journeys Project. JTJ will consist of the following:
The Judea Teen Journeys Project will take the magic of Jewish camp and apply it to a Jewish learning experience that will inspire and engage your teen. From teen led programming to youth group events, to special elective tracks to opportunities for social action and teen leadership; JTJ offers your teen the convenience of a once-monthly commitment in the context of an exciting and engaging program that speaks to them.
All students in the year of their b’nei mitzvah are expected to enroll and demonstrate consistent attendance in the JTJ program or Machon Zehut.
In addition, to JTJ or Machon Zehut, students in the year of their b’nei mitzvah will need to complete the b’nei mitzvah seminar program though the clergy office. Please contact Stacey Rutstein, b’nei mitzvah coordinator for further details about this program.
10th Grade Confirmation
Tenth grade students are able to choose to enroll in either the full JTJ program and participate in 4 local Confirmation sessions plus two rehearsals with Rabbi Aaronson and Rabbi Spector OR tenth grade students are able to register for Confirmation only. Confirmation by itself consists of 4 local sessions, 1 retreat at Camp Alonim, and 2 rehearsals. No previous enrollment in religious school required to achieve Confirmation.
We sincerely hope your teen will take advantage of this exciting new program! Click here for pricing and registration. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our Director of Education, Rebecca Raskin at
