B’nai TELEM is a service-learning program for b’nai mitzvah youth, typically in grades six and seven. Participants are introduced to social justice issues with learning and reflection sessions that encourage participants to think critically about social justice issues through a Jewish lens. The B’nai TELEM program is centered on community service experiences in a variety of non-profit settings that introduce participants to the TELEM program service tracks: Connecting Generations; Environmental Sustainability; Literacy; Poverty – Hunger and Homelessness; Special Needs. B’nai TELEM groups generally meet during regular Hebrew School hours though service experiences may take place at different times.
