PITA Jan-Mar 2018
Youth @ Temple Aliyah (Y@TA) is proud to present our first ever Teen Israel Education Seminar this January-March: PITA (Presenting Israel at Temple Aliyah), open to all students in Grades 8-12!

Celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Establishment of the State of Israel, we will be offering an eight-part Israel Seminar focusing on the Temple-Wide Theme of "Kol Yisrael Arevim Zeh L'Zeh" - "All of Israel Are Responsible for One Another."

Six of the sessions will focus on Israel Education and two of the sessions will focus on Campus Israel Engagement (see the session descriptions below).

The goals of the Israel Education program are to:
- Bring together local teens for continued Jewish and Israel education
- Delve deeper than the typical day school or religious school curriculum into "What is My Relationship with Israel?"
- Discuss issues of responsibility, belonging and identity of American Jews with Israel
- Use interactive and experiential activities (including activities such as cooking and films) to understand the role of Israel in our lives as American Jews

The goals for the Campus Israel Engagement sessions are to:
- Train teens to think about how they might address issues related to Israel in college
- Support and grow teens' confidence in their ability to talk about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
- Give teens the tools for how to engage in conversations of respectful disagreement both around Israel and in life
