Join us for CHALLAH!

CHALLAH classes are hosted by CBI and open to any teens in grades 8th - 12th. CHALLAH classes are designed to:

  • Deepen Jewish knowledge through focused skill-building
  • Prepare teens to enter the world as well-rounded Jewish young adults
  • Help develop lifelong Jewish learners
  • Foster Jewish joy


CHALLAH follows a trimester schedule and meets on Thursday nights, with the exception of school breaks and Jewish holidays, from 6:45 pm - 8 pm. There is an additional Supper Club option each week from 6 pm - 6:45 pm.

Each CHALLAH session includes a community gathering led by Rabbi Ariella Rosen, a one-hour class, and social time.
