AT MIDRASHA, TEENS SEARCH FOR MEANING ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS AT RODEF SHOLOM
Jewish learning lasts a lifetime. The teens who continue attending religious school after their b’nai mitzvah gain a broader and deeper understanding of their Jewish heritage. That’s because Midrasha is geared to teens who are ready to handle more complicated, mature topics in classes taught by incredible professionals who bring light to their lives. This program allows teens to build lasting friendships while inspiring them to continue their Jewish education into college and throughout their adult lives.

Eighth, ninth and tenth graders engage in grade-based seminars, studying topics that include Jewish pop culture, philanthropy, Israel, music, tough topics, and more, all through a lense of integrating Jewish values into their own lives. 

Taught by Rabbi Stacy Friedman, eleventh and twelfth graders in a collaborative learning seminar that allows the students to ask big questions and engage in discussion while thinking about their future beyond high school.

All grade students will also participate in electives such as cooking, yoga, Fire Circle, Jewish law, art, social justice and more!
