Can your teen defend Judaism if challenged? Can your teen successfully address these fundamental questions? (Can you?)

  • Can we know for sure whether there is a G‑d, or is asserting G‑d‘s existence just a matter of belief?
  • Do scientific theories about the origin of life conflict with the creation stories in Genesis?
  • Do I have to believe in G‑d to be a good person?
  • How do we know if the Torah is true? 

At Skokie Cteen's  JLI Teens (for 9-12th grade) and Jewish Essentials (for 6-8th grade), we discuss Jewish identity in the 21st century and address these kinds of topics in an engaging and relevant manner.

JLI Teens is a fresh way for teens to learn the foundational concepts of Judaism. Classes are taught by Rabbi Yochanan Posner, and deal with essentials which are often overlooked by the Jewish day school system because they are taken for granted, and provides the grounding in Judaism which is needed by Jewish kids in public school.

JLI Teens is for Jewish boys and girls, grades 9-12, and will meet on six Tuesdays, January 29 through March 4, 2020. For more information click here: www.JLITeens.com

Jewish Essentials is for Jewish boys and girls, grades 6-8, and meets on Tuesdays, at 6:30 pm. For more information & schedule click here: Cteen Junior Jewish Essentials
