BZBI, where you volunteer

Kadima

image2USY Kadima offers the youth members of BZBI an opportunity to build their relationship with the BZBI community away from Hebrew school. Kadima offers a social environment away from the school setting that helps develop stronger bonds with friends from class. Our monthly programs around the city of Philadelphia build camaraderie as well as a substantial interaction with Jewish values. Experiential learning offers a strong complement to the education provided in the classroom. While learning of these ideals in class is productive, actualizing on our curriculums allows for essential exposure to and participation in the application of these values. There are events that focus more on creating a fun environment, such as going bowling or ice skating. In addition, there are events that take a more sincere look at how Judaism plays a role in helping our community. This was demonstrated by an event where we walked around center city and handed out baked goods and shared positive messages and warm smiles with the homeless community. Through this event, we can actualize on mitzvot of helping those in need as well as learn about Jewish values such as equality of human life. Even just a picnic in the park adds to a sense of congregation, which does not have to be limited to the sanctuary on Shabbat mornings. USY Kadima helps to expand one’s Jewish identity in a fun, engaging and active way.
