This is the Adventure Rabbi Program, not the Slacker Rabbi Program. Bar and Bat Mitzvah students must be in reasonable physical shape to participate in this group. You do not have to be an incredible athlete, but you shouldn’t be a couch potato who hates hiking.
Bar and Bat mitzvah students must be willing to meet 7 requirements to be accepted to this program:
1. Be in excellent physical health and willing to engage in strenuous activities, such as a 6.2-mile hike, 3.1 miles uphill and 3.1 miles downhill. A good test for yourself is to be sure that you can hike uphill without stopping for 30 minutes and that you can engage in a continuous physical activity for 2-hours. (We will be out much longer than that.) If you struggle with asthma or other breathing challenges or just don’t like hard physical exercise, consider our Mitzvah Class.
2. Enjoy social situations with peers and be willing and able to work with a group. Be willing to bring in any student who feels left out.
3. Students may make-up two classes by reading assigned chapters of Rabbi Korngold’s books and writing about them. Orientation may only be made up by a private class with Rabbi Korngold for $250. After two missed classes, the third missed class is made up by private study with Rabbi Korngold for $250/hour.
4. Be ready to learn! There are no Hebrew or Religious school prerequisites for this class but you must be ready to learn. Students are expected to be respectful of the Rabbi, other staff and each other. Although this is a fun program, it is still academically rigorous and school rules apply.
5. Complete all homework (googledoc) assignments and share with the Rabbi. They generally take 30 minutes to write-up.
6. Parents must be willing to join our class Livingtree group where our we post important information.
7. Students must complete the required Hebrew prayers, 6 Torah verses, and speeches before the ceremony. (Students must learn to read in Hebrew, not transliteration.)
