Temple Avodat Shalom Teen Experience
TASTE (Temple Avodat Shalom Teen Experience) is the post B'nai Mitzvah program for 8th-12th graders. We meet on Wednesday nights from 7-9 PM.
The teens have two classes. The first class (core) is with their grade.
The second (elective) is with mixed grades and the teens get to choose this class. The elective classes will change about three or four times a year, allowing the teens to sample a variety of classes. In between the classes there is a break with snack and social time.
All classes are interactive and discussion based. Personal opinions and ideas are encouraged and there is no homework.
Past elective classes have included Song Leading, Jewish Comedy, Reproductive Rights and marriage Equality, Hate Crimes, Israel in the Media, and Jews in Baseball.
