Register for J-Line

Beth El Congregation, Temple Emanuel,  South Hills Jewish Pittsburgh and the JCC are bringing the very best opportunities for Jewish Teen Engagement to the South Hills.

We aim to make Jewish values ‘front row and center’ in a way that speaks to teens in today’s world. The teenage years are an important time, and we aim to make Jewish values ‘front row and center’ in a way that speaks to teens in today’s world.  We have crafted unique and enriching learning opportunities for teens to dig deeper with the same J Line learning values we have used in the past.

South Hills Jewish teens will be encouraged to ask and be challenged by these questions:

  • Who am I?
  • With whom and what am I connected?
  • To whom and for what am I responsible in this world?
  • How can I bring about change in this world?
