JLI Teens

JLI Teens

We are excited to inform you about a new program for your teenagers starting this October!

As parents, we worry about the well-being of our teens. How will they successfully forge their future? How can we provide a safety net and guidance while encouraging their independence? How do we impart our values and beliefs, empowering them to make wise decisions as they go through the many challenges of life? Can we build their self-esteem and help them develop a strong inner compass they can trust in challenging situations?

This is why we created the JLI TEENS DISCOVERY PROGRAM, a warm, safe and dynamic environment where your teen can explore and discover their own voice, while gaining insight and inspiration from the principles and deep wisdom that has guided our people for millennia.

JLI Teens is a think club meets on Mondays from 7:10-8:15 PM starting October at Chabad to discuss and debate the issues that are highly important to teens.

The cost for the year is just $250 which includes 18 power-sessions accompanied by innovative multimedia. The teens will also get three textbooks and refreshments will be served.

 Previous Courses:

 

  • LOVE SECRETS: A JEWISH TAKE

    ADVICE FROM THE MOST UNLIKELY SOURCES

    This course explores the messages teens are getting from the mainstream media and Western culture, concerning dating, attraction, love, beauty, and sexuality. By inviting students to take a serious look at these real life issues and the way their relationships play out in their day-to-day lives, we will transmit the profound wisdom found in Torah and Chassidus.

  • LIVING YOUR DREAM

    CREATING A LIFE PLAN FOR SUCCESS

    Life happens; but success at life is a product of a dream, a strategy, core values, and hard work. What are the tools and values teens will need not only to get them through life, but to thrive and succeed beyond their wildest imaginations? Living Your Dream explores the concept of success.

  • MYTH BUSTERS

    WHAT THEY DIDN'T TELL YOU IN HEBREW SCHOOL

    Does Judaism believe in angels? How about heaven and hell? What’s a chamsa charm used for? Why is the pig the most nonkosher of animals? And speaking of food, what are the origins of gefilte fish, cholent, and other Jewish delicacies? We’ll talk about Jews with tattoos and other taboos.

  • LIFE ON THE LINE

    Debate real-life news stories such as rescuing strangers, euthanasia, and attempted suicide. The course invites students to share their views and opinions on each case. The lesson structure is built to allow each participant to render judgment on these life-and-death scenarios and then consider what ancient Judaism says about those modern-day dilemmas - discovering an entirely new way of navigating life’s tough decisions.

  • WHY I LOVE ISRAEL

    Is there something wrong with the way Israel has conducted itself in its attempts to bring peace to the Middle East? Why does it seem that Israel has so many enemies? How important is Israel to me, anyway? Your teen will take a journey; where they will virtually travel through the Holy Land, learn of the history, meaning and holiness of this ancient country. They will see how this faraway place is their home, and how their Jewish identity is connected to it.

  • HOLLYWOOD IDOL

    This course will analyze how the culture of Hollywood subliminally influences our society. It offers teens the opportunity to discover how every movie—every story—is inherently a message and commentary on life. They will be challenged to consider and think deeply about these messages, whether they really agree with them, and how these values compare with those of our tradition.

  • COMPLICATED ME

    How well do you know yourself? Do you know why you think the way you think? Is your personality a product of your upbringing or are you an independent, self-made person? Why do you feel pious one day and heretical the next? These and other questions will be explored as teens discuss and debate what makes us happy, successful, better at relationships, able to cope with stress, and more.
