Shall we sing in Hebrew? Knowledge of the native language is very important, because without it any nation will lose its uniqueness. And we - Jews living in different countries, are learning the language, because Hebrew is what unites us. And songs are one of the most important parts of culture.

“Film Time”

The "Film Time" project has been running for 2 years. Each time the teenager chooses a movie, a list of questions is drawn up and quotes are written out. After watching the film, the guys discuss what they saw and answer questions.

EDUCATION

Affordable Jewish education for every teenager

We provide teenagers with the knowledge they need to understand what it means to be a part of Jewish culture and to be Jewish in general. AJT is new friends who share the same world perception as you and share your interests. AJT is knowledge that will definitely come in handy, because Jewish history and traditions are the basis of any education and an integral part of world culture.

Each teenager has the opportunity not only to study the history and tradition of the Jewish people, but also to lead the educational unit in hisher club, invent and conduct classes in his/her teenage club by themselves.

I have been in AJT for 4 years and every day I am more and more convinced that this is the place where I will be accepted as I am. Here I meet new interesting people, grow, and most importantly develop in many areas. There are many different interesting activities, lectures and events in AJT where you will definitely not get bored.

First AJT offsite event. Probably the most interesting was the format of the classes itself, since every time we changed in groups and one could hear new opinions and ideas.
