Midrasha: My Weekly Jewish Refuge
“The one place during the week where I can just slow down for a minute and get to be myself.” ~Rachel, Age 15
Rachel had a difficult year: she had a falling out with friends, was angry, and did not know who to turn to. But her midrasha instructor helped her channel her anger into compassion — through songwriting.
From that point on, Rachel knew she could count on Midrasha — a weekly learning and social gathering for Jewish teens — for support. Midrasha gives her a rare chance to connect with a Jewish community every week.
As Rachel grows from an anxious teen to a confident Jewish adult, we are with her every step of the way.
