Teens in grades 8-12 who live in the Boston metropolitan area meet at Hebrew College on Sundays, 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to learn Judaic and Hebrew studies together. A variety of courses is offered taught by professors, musicians, artists, dancers, scientists, lawyers, doctors, historians, writers, journalists, social activists, and rabbis. Bus transportation from Temple Emunah to Hebrew College in Newton is provided at a nominal fee.
Prozdor creates a vibrant community for Jewish youth during their adolescent years. Through a diverse program, students are helped to develop strong Jewish identities to be future leaders of American Jewry.
Prozdor's academic program is rich and varied, and students have the power to choose the subjects that they wish to study. Traditional texts, history, Israel, philosophy, literature, Hebrew and the arts are just some areas that engage our students as they gain a genuine love of Jewish learning from our faculty. Prozdor's commitment to Jewish experiential education provides students with additional opportunities to connect to their peers and to Judaism beyond the classroom, and our Jewish travel experiences serve to expose our students to Jewish life all over the world.
Prozdor promotes the value of "ahavat Yisrael" — love of Israel — culminating in Prozdor graduates who have a strong understanding of, and connection to, the State of Israel. Prozdor also promotes a community built on "k'lal Yisrael" — all of Israel — and a respect for Jewish diversity. It allows students to find their place in "am Yisrael" — the nation of Israel — and become aware of their responsibility to pass down Judaism to the next generation. Prozdor prepares students to enter their college years ready for the challenges of being a Jewish young adult in America and in the larger world.
