Teen Class

Sunday Evening Teen Class    Meets twice monthly at The Meeting House
5:00pm – 7:00pm


Rabbi Michael announces something new for CJC Teens post B’nai Mitzvah — Grades 8-12!

We are very excited that our teen group will be co-taught by Rabbi Michael Hess Webber and Stephanie Gurwitz-Zurier! We will meet weekly Sunday evenings from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Some weeks Rabbi Michael will teach, some weeks Morah Stephanie will teach, and some weeks they will both teach together.
A schedule of classes can be found here.  

This year our very popular theme is Understanding Our Neighbors, Understanding Ourselves. We will learn about different parts of our Jewish community and about members of our larger community. Some experiences could include a visit to a local mosque, meetings with clergy from the varied Howard county religious organizations, attend a church service, learn about the different branches of Judaism and have the opportunity to meet and learn about our indifferent ethnic neighbors.

Teen class offers an open and honest classroom where all opinions and ideas are welcome and respected. We encourage discussion and questioning in a safe environment. It is a place for Jewish teens to connect with other Jewish teens while exploring different aspects of our religion, values, history and culture.

As the beginning of the school year gets closer please register in advance by clicking here. If you want to sample a class before you register – you are welcome. We encourage students to come and experience the first couple classes.

Pizza and fun are part of this group including games, debates and lots of snacks. A complete schedule will be sent shortly.



Sundays – B’Yachad Student Aides assist teachers and students in many ways. They help with activities in the classrooms, provide one-on-one tutoring to students, facilitate special programs, and help to run B’Yachad.  Aides receive a modest pay for their service.  Please contact byachad.omjs@gmail.com for more information.
