The goal of this program is to enable the students to incorporate Torah – Jewish teachings in the broadest sense into their adult lives and into their decision-making process. Students will discover what it takes to maintain their Jewish heritage in a secular world. Students will embody what they know about being Jewish as they identify and perform Mitzvah and Tzedakah projects for community service and social justice. Community service credits are typically accepted by our local public schools.

Bnai Portland also believes that there is importance and value for the teens to maintain connections and create friendships with other Jewish kids in the area.
