Yeshiva University and CTeen U Form Joint Initiative

Choosing a college with your teen is one of the most exciting, life changing decisions, a parent can do with their child.


The Chabad of Bronxville is launching CTeen U, a joint initiative of Yeshiva University and the Chabad Teen Network. Yeshiva University, a world class University for higher education, features undergraduate and graduate programs. Their undergraduate programs offer a unique dual curriculum comprising Jewish studies and liberal arts, sciences and business courses.


Chabad of Bronxville’s CTeen Chapter is partnering with Yeshiva University to give 10th, 11th and 12th graders the chance to advance their resume and college career, while taking a deep dive into Jewish philosophy.


There is no homework involved, making this course a minimal time commitment for the busy teen. Classes will be held once a week for 14 weeks starting Tuesday, October 13 at 7pm. The course will be taught by Rabbi Sruli Deitsch, giving students a curriculum in the tenets of Judaism, cultivating a strong sense of purpose, Jewish identity and global responsibility. Students taking the course will earn 2 private college credits.


Students will study the foundations of classic Jewish thought, covering ideas such as, how do we ascertain that the Torah is true? And, what does it mean to believe in G-d?


Students are encouraged to make their learning personal by sharing ideas, feelings, and engaging in a thoughtful dialogue about key issues.
