Binah: Jewish Learning Institute for Teens

Pursuing social justice and participating in social action are driving values of our Reform Movement. Much like those who came before us, we face real problems in our world that require real solutions. Over the course of this weekend, we will examine issues that are both historically and currently relevant to our lives as Reform Jews. We will move towards solutions that can shape both our individual actions as well as those of our wider Jewish community.
