About the Nitznim-Ofek Program:
We are happy to announce our collaboration with the Israeli American Council, (IAC) for 2021. IAC is bringing their Ofek program to our 6th & 7th grade Nitzanim Youth Group. Ofek is a unique program that offers fun and engaging activities while promoting Jewish identity and strengthening children’s connection to Israel, its culture and language.

Nitznim-Ofek is a 10-session series running January 2021 to May 2021.
The program will meet twice a month on Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00pm.
The first 45 minutes of each meeting will be dedicated to a different monthly subject (see list below) taught by an Israeli professional with expertise on the subject. After a short recess, Eldad Malka from IAC Colorado will lead a session on leadership skills through team building activities. Eldad will also connect the Ofek program and the participants’ own Jewish journey.


The HEA Nitzanim-Ofek will offer the following special topics:

TLV Graffiti: January 12 & 26
We will learn about Tel Aviv graffiti and the stories behind Israeli street art. Participants will need white paper, scissors, crayons and a black marker.

Animation: February 9 & 23
We will learn how to create animation videos. We recommend using a desktop or a laptop with a mouse and PowerPoint.

Israeli Music: March 9 & 23
We will experience and learn about current and past Israeli Music and the most updated trends happening now in Israel.

Creating Video Games: April 6 & 20 
Israeli Cooking: May 11 & 25 

Thanks to a generous HEA youth scholarship, the cost of the series is only $40 per student! This is a new and unique program for us in both scope, content and students’ commitment and we hope that you will encourage your child to participate.  Please register your child by January 10th HERE. Additional scholarships are available.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Rabbi Sherry Grinsteiner with any questions.
