Journeys 6th Grade Family Retreat

The Journeys 6th Grade Family Retreat is the kick-off event of our 2 year B’nai Mitzvah Family Education program called, “Journeys.” The Retreat is facilitated by CBJ’s clergy team of Rabbi Ezray, Ritual Director Bill Futornick, Rabbi Ilana Goldhaber-Gordon and Cantor Barbara Powell.

The 6th grade year features workshops about:
The Retreat: the family journey. Parents share their stories together, B’nai Mitzvah youth learn how to focus this rite of passage into greater responsibility/privilege in Jewish life with doing good in the world. Chesed and Tzedakah/Acts of Kindness and Righteous Giving are a first step.
Shalom Bayit / Peace in the Home.
Tallit / Create your own Tallit.
Ethical Will–passing on your Jewish Values from parents to children.

In 7th Grade:
