Pursue: Making Summer School Fun with Justice and Jewish Thoughtby Leah Koenig | June 12, 2012 | 0 comments
This time of year, when high schools and colleges across the country are closing up shop for the summer months, the idea of summer school might be the last thing anyone wants to think about. But what if you could learn about justice and Jewish thought this summer with small groups of other great people?
This summer in New York City, starting July 9 and going through August 27, Pursue is hosting Justice and Jewish Thought – a city-wide program exploring race, class, gender, sexual identity and anti-semitism through the lens of Jewish identity and social justice. The classes will run weekly for eight weeks and give participants a chance to build community and deepen their understanding of social change.
Best of all, the program is participant-led – so there’s no teacher grading papers. Instead, participants take turns hosting the program in their homes and facilitating the group discussion (with lots of curriculum ideas and assistance provided by Pursue).
So don’t miss this unique opportunity to make new friends, learn about justice and, yes, go to school, this summer. To find out more about participating in Pursue’s Justice and Jewish Thought Summer School, click here.
