9th & 10th Grade (POWTY Foundation), 7:30 - 8:30 pm 
Members of the POWTY Foundation will meet virtually approximately twice per month to engage with Judaism through study, discussion, decision making, fundraising and philanthropy. This unique, impactful program has a curriculum that is both challenging and rewarding for participants. Our year of learning takes us out of the synagogue and into organizations in our community doing sacred, justice-seeking work, prioritizes teen fundraising projects small and grand, and culminates with a powerful Check Ceremony. Not only is the program unique, making it a great resume item, but it also teaches skills, and makes Judaism accessible, in ways that teens cannot experience anywhere else. Over the past 6 years of the program, the POWTY Foundation has fundraised and donated over $19,000 to nonprofit organizations on Long Island.

Students in Kabbalat Torah will meet virtually approximately twice per month to study with Rabbi Z, and occasionally with Cantor Franco & Rabbi Sank Ross, for two years filled with discussion, debate, growth and Jewish learning. Students graduate from their final education program at The Community Synagogue feeling confident in their Jewish identity, and excited for continued Jewish learning throughout their lives. The program culminates for 12th grade graduates in a special confirmation ceremony (and your picture up on the wall of the synagogue!).
