Adventure Rabbi Teens

with Elaine Barenblat

Adventure * Friendship * Learning * Fun


Our teens meet once a month for an adventure. Sometimes it's a physical adventure, like hiking or geocaching. Other times it's an indoor adventure such as working together to cook Shabbat dinner or getting out of an escape room. It is always an adventure in building community and deepening friendships.

Our enrollment fee is very low, covering only Elaine's time. Each individual event has a cost attached to it and you pay only for the events your teen attends and a share of Elaine's entrance fee. If any of the venues we use increase their prices, ours will also change.

  • Deepen your Jewish friendships
  • Make new Jewish friends
  • Outdoor Adventures
  • Led by Elaine Barenblat, Adventure Educator
  • Meets Monthly
  • Experiential Learning
  • You do not need to be a graduate of our Bar and Bat Mitzvah program to participate.
  • Please note: Adventure Rabbi staff is not permitted to drive participants to and from these events. Parents will be responsible for transportation or carpool organization.
