TAAglit Atzmi

TAAglit Atzmi (Personal Journey) is a triennial curriculum for students in 7th-9th 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 coming year, students will look into the history of Southern Jewry and how we relate to that history and identify with it today. The program will include discussions about the Civil Rights movement in the south, including the Jewish involvement in that movement and our own people’s struggles with equality and prejudice.

The program culminates in a road trip around the southeast. Previous years’ trips have stopped in Birmingham, Selma, Savannah and Memphis.
