As teens leave home to enter into the next phase of their lives, parents often wonder how their child will navigate the next steps. The Partnership inspires, engages and empowers young people to take ownership of their Jewish journey and gives them the skills to chart their own course.
Meet Adam Basciano from Randolph. Adam is the go-to-guy for any Jewish related topics at his university. As a junior, he is the head of the two largest Jewish organizations on campus.
"The Partnership introduced me to the greater Jewish community and Israel. It was transformative and an important part of my growing up."
Unlike some love stories that are best kept discreet, this one should to be told ... and re-told. It’s all true. It’s a love story about a woman and some teenagers.
The story started when the Iris Teen Tzedakah Program was established in 2006 at The Partnership for Jewish Learning and Life by Milly Iris, family and friends in memory of Milly’s late husband, Herb.
Even though summer is over, many families are already thinking about the often overwhelming process of choosing the right camp for their child. The Cohens of Short Hills, along with hundreds of other families in the Greater MetrowWest community, have One Happy Camper NJ and camp expert Tracy Levine to thank for helping them navigate through the process and find the right Jewish overnight camp for their children.
"We had checked out several other Jewish camps before finally deciding on Crane Lake," said Koby, age 12. "I knew right away that I had made a great decision. Camp truly feels like home away from home! I love the connection I made with my friends and counselors, including those coming from Israel."
