Via: Teens on the CTeen Israel Journey joined the Mayanot Summer program for an evening of learning with Chavrusa partners. They were addressed by Rabbi  Mendy Kotlarsky , vice chairman of CTeen and executive director of Merkos 302 and Rabbi Shneur Broh , director of the Post High Program at Mayanot Institute of Jewish Studies .  CTeen Israel Journey, directed by CTeen's Summer Program Director, Rabbi Nachman Rivkin , takes Jewish teens who attend public high schools on a 22-day journey through the history, culture, and character of the Jewish People and Israel.  Mayanot was happy to host so many young CTeen participants on campus in Jerusalem, being able to learn together and introduce them to our program, answer their many questions and hear about their trip throughout Israel was a great joy for us. We hope to do it again soon!
