Curriculum Outlook for 8th-12th TiKone USY Program

8th-12th grade-TiKone USY
Our 8th-12th graders are heading into the second year of our TiKone USY program this fall.  This new innovative program synergized our Education and Youth Departments into one dynamic program with emphasis on personal connection, challenges, personal growth, mentorship, and education. This model allows us to meet the modern students’ needs and desires from social and educational perspectives while allowing for more students to stay connected to Jewish/Synagogue life.  Sunday students will chose from electives (Jewish Artisan, Basketball and Pop Culture, Golden Kepah, Jewish Drama, Krav Maga and Israel, Music (Rock Band), or TUSY Leadership) for the 1st and 2nd hours and will have core classes (8th grade-Holocaust and Ritual, 9th– Bible I and Texting in the Talmud, 10th/11th grade- Bible II and American Judaism, 12th grade- Senior Seminar) during the 3rd hour.  On Wednesdays students will have the opportunity to participate in many forms of experiential education including TiKone USY Lounge Nights and some fun interactive programs. Students will be planning exciting events, developing leadership skills, and spending time together. The Wednesday night program allows students to socialize and learn together in a safe and comfortable environment.
