MASA (Post-B'nai Mitzvah Program for 8th & 9th graders)

Shearith Israel’s post-B’nai Mitzvah class, MASA (“journey” in Hebrew), helps each student develop a personal relationship with the Jewish tradition through interactive learning, student-driven discussions, and timely, relevant topics. Classes include sessions and discussions with Rabbi Kaiman, Nancy Gorod, or a guest speaker. The highlight of the year is a class trip in March 2020 to New York City to explore the beginnings of the greater Jewish Community in America. On alternate years, the MASA class travels to Washington, D.C.


when/where we meet:

MASA meets every other Sunday at 3:30 at CSI unless otherwise noted. A full schedule (including field trips) can be found at


what we do:

During the 2019-2020 school year, our MASA class will explore our own local Jewish community. We’ll visit various agencies and organizations, and explore the different denominations of Judaism through visits and discussions with local Rabbis.

Parents may register their 8th or 9th grader for MASA at Throughout the year, we rely on parents to help drive our teens to our many field trips. If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Gorod, Director of Congregational Learning, at
