NCSY’s “Out of the Box Bnei Mitzvah” program teaches Judaism essentials in a series of fun, engaging and relevant classes over the course of 2 years with a focus on preparing your child for their Bnei! Students explore unique Jewish topics through the lens of their own personal strengths and interests – an innovative approach to traditional study that ensures that every child is valued and engaged. The course will include out-of-the-box proficiency testing to be able to scale the students’ accrued knowledge through fun and informal methodology.
Included in the program is a complementary Friday night dinner for the students and a family Shabbaton (that we will be offering at a discounted rate). A ceremony will mark the completion of the course, where students will showcase their knowledge in unique “Out of the Box” presentations, as well as receive certificates of mastery.
Our goal is for each participant and their families to cherish this special time in their lives with a positive experience as well as foster an impetus for their Jewish involvement in the future! We look forward to partnering at this meaningful time.
