WHO is welcome at Midrasha?

Teens, this is a GREAT time to invite a friend to join you or for any teen who hasn't been able to join us due to other commitments.  Just "drop" in!


Mifgash means encounter in Hebrew.  This day camp for teens aims to interweave Israeli and American teens during eight-ten days of bus adventures through-out the Bay Area.  Whether riding roller-coasters, combing beaches, exploring new technology or climbing the steps of Coit Tower, teens bond & grow their Jewish identity.


Midrasha retreats are the glue of our program.  Teens spend a Shabbat weekend in community meeting new Jewish friends from all over the Bay Area.  Enjoying nature with hikes, campfires and star-filled Havdalah celebrations.  After a weekend relaxing in pajamas, CCM teens only want more!

The Hamsa Fund:

(The East Bay's Jewish Teen Philanthropy Board) empowers teens to "be the change we want to see in the world."  Through monthly meetings, teens learn the 4-1-1 of philanthropy and tzedakah (justice), in order to choose a cause, raise money, and pick organizations to support through grant funds.
