Chabad of Tidewater introduces local CTeen chapter

by | Feb 4, 2019 | What’s Happening

Sunday, February 10, 5:30–7:30 pm

A worldwide club aimed at engaging Jewish teenagers in Jewish identity and practice in a fun fashion, CTeen of Hampton Roads is being launched by Chabad of Tidewater. The club is open to Jewish teens in eighth, ninth, and 10th grades.

CTeen currently has 500 chapters in 20 countries and six continents. Local CTeen directors, Rabbi Levi and Rashi Brashevitzky, attribute the program’s success to the unique CTeen philosophy, which believes in the power of youth. “What we offer is a means of channeling that power in a positive and uplifting way,” says Rabbi Levi Brashevitzky.

CTeen will provide teens with meaningful opportunities for Tikkun Olam, offering a variety of community service projects. CTeen events also present time to socialize with area Jewish teens, to learn about Judaism, and to cultivate Jewish pride.

Cookies 4 Cops, the first Tidewater event, will include community building games and baking, packaging, and delivering cookies to local police officers—with a light dinner to round out the program.

RSVP at (location will be provided upon RSVP).
