Jewish teenagers want to engage. Just ask them

Jewish teenagers want to engage. Just ask them | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Welcoming teens into Jewish life is both one of the most important and seemingly challenging endeavors of the Jewish community. The rapid decline in teen engagement in Jewish life post-b’nai mitzvah is well-documented and depressing. It’s also an entirely reversible trend, but only if the Jewish community approaches teen engagement in a new way — one that recognizes the whole teen and values her or him as an equal partner in creating experiences that add meaning to her or his life.

Tikvatenu: The Poem that Inspired Israel’s National Anthem, Hatikva - TheTorah.com | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
For over 130 years, Hatikva has served as a modern psalm for the Jewish People. Its various, though selected, types of uses of biblical material have helped cement its relationship with the Jewish community, and have made it sound like a quasi-biblical, though modern, psalm, which connects Hatikva to Jewish tradition in a profound manner.
