TAAglit Atzmi, meaning Personal Journey, is a triennial curriculum for students in 8th-10th grade. The curriculum is uniquely designed to impact day school students and public school students alike.

The TAAglit Atzmi program provides an opportunity for teens to interact and build lifelong friendships with teens throughout the Metro-Atlanta area. These friendships are a building block to developing a stronger Jewish identity and connection to the greater Jewish community.

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. This class helps students place themselves in the multiple narratives and timelines which we inherit as American Jews, and create a deeper connection with their own personal narratives.

The program culminates in a 4 day trip to Washington, D.C. Highlights of the trip include:

  • Tour of US Holocaust Museum
  • Walking tour of The Mall, including the Lincoln Memorial, the National WWII Memorial and the Washington Monument
  • Riverboat Monument Sunset Cruise
  • Visit with AIPAC representatives
  • Visit to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum followed by an IMAX show
  • Visit to the Museum of American History
