Message from Rabbi Robyn

V’shinantam l’vanecha, and you shall teach it to your children …..these words that we recite in the Sh’ma demand that we give our children the tools to access the how-to’s of living a meaningful life guided by Jewish values. Our Be Mitzvah students learn to embrace our ancient teachings, not as meaningless ancient words but as a reservoir of wise, instructive guidelines beckoning them to add their voices and to find meaning in their interpretation. Through this year-long Be Mitzvah intensive program, students gain a sense of pride in their Jewish identity and a deeper understanding of our prayers and our communal responsibilities to the world around them.”
