Jewish teens today are full of surprises. They love participating in Jewish life and culture. They are concerned about their peers’ mental health. They count their parents among their closest friends. These are just a few of the findings The Jewish Education Project and Rosov Consulting discovered by surveying close to 18,000 Jewish teens from 14 national youth-serving organizations for GenZ Now: Understanding and Connecting With Jewish Teens Today.
A special event is planned for October 24, 7–9 p.m. at the Midway Jewish Center, 330 S. Oyster Bay Rd, in Syosset for Jewish educators, clergy, lay leaders, and community stakeholders to hear from teens to learn how to create meaningful Jewish educational experiences.
Kosher hors d’oeuvres and dessert will be served. Rick Morse is the event chair, and featured presenters include Jodie Siff of the Reconstructionist Synagogue of the North Shore; Howard Wohl, chairman of the board, Tanger Hillel at Brooklyn College; David Bryfman, CEO, The Jewish Education Project; and Susan Wachsstock, chief program officer, The Jewish Education Project.
