 7-8      Identity & transition   

 Designed for students entering their teens, this course focuses on issues of religious identity and what it means to have an engaged spirituality in either tradition. Introducing the development of Jewish and Christian traditions over the years, students will learn about the history and culture of both religions. Some may choose to prepare for Bar/Bat Mitzvah or Christian confirmation, while others will continue their religious journeys. How to educate the children is the most pressing issue facing interfaith families.

 9-12 IFC High School

There are 6 sessions—3 will be a “Rap with the Reverend” and 3 will be a “Rap with the Rabbi” The curriculum will be organic. The rap sessions will be related to concerns and curiosities that our teens currently have. These may be related (but not limited to) our world news, things happening in school or things to do with our teen's spiritual identities.

Goals:

1.To keep a connection with our students and their families after they have completed our Identity and Transition course.
2. To help teens during a tumultuous time in their lives to have connections to their clergy.
3. To give spiritual guidance to our interfaith adolescents.

*College students will be invited to “drop in “ when they are home from school for a drop in rate of $30
