Chabad and Yeshiva University Offer Torah Class for High Schoolers

Print This Article

Chabad and Yeshiva University are offering a Torah class high school students can take for college credit.

Beginning in November, high school students in grades 10-12 will have the opportunity to earn two private college credits in the course being offered by CTeen U, a joint initiative of Yeshiva University and Chabad Teen Network (CTeen).

“I know how busy teens are preparing for college—this is an opportunity for them to advance their resume and college career while studying the Torah’s timeless wisdom,” Bais Bezalel Rabbi Moshe Levin, who will be leading the class along with other teachers, said. “The teens will be encouraged to ask questions and make their knowledge personal.”

The course — which CTeen U describes as a “Jewish philosophy overview presented by local instructors with an online review on the Yeshiva University Portal” — is open to Jewish high school students from all backgrounds across Los Angeles. No previous Judaic knowledge is required.

Classes will be held once a week over 14 weeks. The curriculum will examine God’s existence, faith, divine providence, purpose, relationships and other topics.

Students will meet in-person in a small group setting at the Bais Bezalel Chabad on Pico Boulevard, or virtually over Zoom.

The registration deadline for the class is October 22.

Credits earned in the class are transferable to a number of colleges, including Brandeis University, Harvard University, and California Institute of the Arts. (For a complete list of colleges that will accept these credits, visit cteenu.com/faqs.)

The cost of the course is $999, although, according to CTeen U, the value of the course —which will count toward “elective credits” in an undergraduate program—is worth $2,000. Scholarships are available.

CTeen U is one of many programs of CTeen, which has over 600 chapters in 37 countries and six continents and describes itself as “the fastest growing network of Jewish teens.”

Based in New York City, Yeshiva University is an institution of higher education with undergraduate programs in both Jewish and secular studies.
