Teen Programs

Three ways Tamid Teens are changing the world! 

 

#1 Mitzvah Corps: 8th-12th Graders

New for 2021-22 and formerly Hebrew High, Mitzvah Corps is a weekly gathering of Tamid teens seeking to participate in action-based learning and community service. Each learning unit will culminate in one or more community service projects (elderly, environment, charity, policy, etc). This is an opportunity for young Jewish adults to better understand how we as individuals, and as a greater community, can make a difference in the lives of humanity. Students can also receive middle and high school community service credit hours for their involvement in Tamid Mitzvah Corps.

Students meet Wednesday nights for study and dinner (6:15 -7:30P ) with Tamid educators and to study and to serve.

To Register in Mitzvah Corps: Participation costs $1550 (includes DHAP registration) – click to enroll

#2 DHAP: Downtown Hunger Action Project

Hunger is something we see and face everyday. DHAP is a monthly community service project for teens to learn, respond, and get involved in hunger and homeless issues in New York. Students deliver food to the homeless and learn how to advocate on behalf of the less fortunate. It’s a great mitzvah and also a great way to earn community service hours for your school.

Students meet one Saturday night per month (6:30pm – 10:00pm) with Jewish educators and rabbis to study and to serve.
