Teen Education and Involvement

There are many ways for teens to continue their learning and Jewish experiences beyond their Religious School education.  We routinely invite teens to read their Haftorah on the anniversaries of their B'nei Mitzvah and to participate in holiday rituals such as reading Megillah on Purim or helping build the Sukkah each fall.  Our goal is to keep our teenagers engaged and active in Jewish life.  

Classroom learning takes a different shape as our students enter their teen years, and as cohorts of varying sizes work their way through our High School program, we will tailor each year's classes and curricula to suit.  

Darcone Visa, for 8th graders, focuses on exploring the Jewish American Experience and includes trips to Ellis Island/the Statue of Liberty, the Tenement Museum and Manhattan's Lower East Side, as well as the New York Israel Pride parade.  The program meets monthly on Wednesdays 6:30-8pm and Sundays 5-7pm, and includes dinner.

Darcone, for 9th-12th graders, focuses on Exploring Israel through a Modern Lens.  The program meets monthly on Sundays, 5-7pm.

We have active Kadima and USY chapters.  For more information, contact Lev Metz at

Many of our teens choose to return to the Religious School as Madrichim, or classroom aides.  In doing so, they earn money and valuable work experience, and they feel the satisfaction of giving back to the CBI community.
