JCA & REGIONAL TEEN PROGRAMMING
We offer a number of programs to teens, including informal education, social programming, community service, leadership opportunities,
and occasional region-wide events. We also identify & suggest offerings in the region that may be of interest to our teens. Our goal
is to nurture teens' Jewish identities and help build community through a variety of programs in which teens can be involved thanks
to a grant from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
Contact Jody Rosenbloom, Director of Lifelong Learning at [email protected] or (413) 256-0160 x203
for more information on any of these programs.

Teva Torah is a year-long program for 7th-9th graders that meets once per month to build community,
practice earth living skills, and learn about nature-based Jewish traditions and teachings. This program is
generously funded by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation Teen Initiative Grant.

JVCorps (Jewish Volunteer Corps for Teens) is a once a month program, open to all Jewish teens in the area grades 7-12
who are interested in volunteering at the Amherst Survival Center. The teens cook, prepare, and clean up a Thursday night
dinner at the Center. The group also brings the food or makes a donation to buy the groceries.
Parents/ guardians are needed to supervise the teens while at the Survival Center.
This program is generously funded by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation Teen Initiative Grant.
