Teen Program

Nesiah, Hebrew for "journey," is Ahavath Achim Synagogue's on-the-move program for 7th – 9th grade students. Nesiah runs on a triennial curriculum, each year exploring a defining era in Jewish history and culminating with a memorable trip. The curriculum is uniquely designed with the needs of day school students and public-school students alike. As students gain a greater understanding of our shared Jewish history, they also learn more about their own identities and their families' stories.

This year, students will take an in-depth look into two of the most influential events in modern Jewish history, the Holocaust and the creation of the State of Israel. The program culminates in a four-day trip to Washington, D.C. (dates TBD).

Nesiah students meet twice a month, one Sunday (10:30 am – 12:30 pm) in-person, and one Wednesday (7:00 – 8:00 pm online).

Tuition is $1400, and it includes all expenses, including field trips and the trip to Washington D.C.
