Project Six Keeps Teens Active in the Jewish Community

By , Fairlawn, NJ

Keeping teenaged girls excited about Judaism is the goal of Project Six, six weeks of Jewish oriented activities to keep the girls involved and active in the Jewish Community. Games, discussions and social events become a vehicle for teaching about Jewish values. The Newjersey.com reports on the recent Project Six event, where the girls made fruit smoothies and played Jewish Family Feud while learning about the Jewish holiday of Tu B’shvat.

 Rabbi Mendel and Elke Zaltzman, the directors of Project Six, say that the teenage years are crucial as religious participation drops dramatically post bar and bat mitzvah. “That is the gap we are trying to fill,” says Rabbi Zaltzman. “Even if you lose touch, you have planted a seed. And you never know when it will spark.”
