Religious School Begins

Sitting at the intersection of tradition, innovation and community, the Religious School at GJC is committed to educating a new generation of children for our evolving Jewish world.  Our program urges students to be curious about their Judaism, and integrates cutting edge teaching methods like Hebrew Through Movement.  As they learn and explore, students build confidence in their knowledge and connection to our tradition, competency in prayer and ritual skills, and a strong sense of Jewish identity and connection.

Emojis, Memes, Likes, and Favorites: Teens and Digitally Mediated Flirtation

Teens' online social interactions are inextricably embedded in their overall social interactions and they use social media to augment, support, and act as extensions of their school and community networks. In this talk, sociology professor Dr. Dina Pinsky will share findings from her research on teens and social media based on her interviews with high school students and observations of their social media accounts. She will discuss the ways in which teens use social media to flirt with each other and explore the evolving culture of adolescents' digitally mediated courtship.
