High School Programs
After Bat/Bar Mitzvah, students are ready to reengage with Judaism on a more mature level. Midrashah and Jewish College Prep provide students with just that chance.
Midrashah challenges adolescents as they think about what Judaism can mean for their lives. They discuss and explore, watch movies and videos, cook a variety of Jewish foods, do social action projects, and go on field trips to other places of worship. Midrashah is a wonderful way for our Jewish adolescents to continue their Jewish journey.
Jewish College Prep
When students enter college, they are expected to have learned certain basics of secular knowledge. They should know Algebra, have an understanding of United States History, and be familiar with some of Shakespeare’s works. Universities want out children to have a base of knowledge from which to continue their educational journey.
At Ohavay Zion Synagogue, we want to provide our students with a similarly strong Jewish base. Jewish College Prep (JCP) is a rotating three year curriculum for 10th through 12th graders. Now that they are older, our students can understand Judaism on a more mature level. They can delve into our traditional texts, exploring Bible, Talmud, and Jewish Mysticism. JCP provides an incredible opportunity for our teenagers as they progress into Jewish adulthood.
