Life long Jewish Learning ...for Teens

if you are a BSS teen interesting in study something Jewish, we’ll be happy set up a Jewish learning session just for you.  Contact Penina at 901-683-3591 or text her at 610-220-0745 for more information.

Moot Beit Din

Take a scenario ripped from the headlines on a contemporary hot button issue from fields like environmental sustainability, bio-medical ethics, or human rights—study what the great sages of Jewish law said about similar circumstances in their time—then debate and discuss what you believe to be the correct Jewish legal response to the situation today.  It’s like Mock Trial meets the Talmud.   But that’s just the beginning!  Next, your legal team writes up your response and sends it off to a panel of real experts in the field for review and response.  And then you go to a competition with other teen teams from across North America and debate just like mock trials. 

Our first Mock Trial team went to Florida to compete at the end of March, 2016 and was awarded second place in their division!  Well done, Team BSS! 

New Beit Din sessions are starting now - don’t miss it!
