Miriam and Bernard H. Sokol Hebrew High School presents the Jewish Teen Project

The Jewish Teen Project is a cooperative learning experience for 8-12th graders in partnership with Moriah Congregation. Our teens come together with our clergy and other dynamic educators to learn and to engage in Jewish life. We want to contribute through social action, and deepen our learning. We seek to engage teens in meaningful conversations that allow them to translate Jewish ethics, values, and practice into their lives and to connect and build relationships with our community and each other.

Join us March 16-19, 2023 for the Maimonides Moot Court Competition in the Pearlstone Retreat Center in Reisterstown, Maryland.

Jewish Teen Project meets on Tuesday evenings in two 8-week  semesters, 1 hour a week from October to March, from 7-8 p.m. Students do NOT need to be members of NSSBE to attend SHHS/The Jewish Project. All Jewish teens are welcome!

Please contact me with any questions:
