Mekirim Teen Program

The “Mekirim” program is an initiative of the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center in Houston Texas, and the ”Chen” School for Young Ambassadors in Petah Tikva, Israel. The program connects young people from Israel and the United States to an in-depth knowledge of dialogical value that emphasizes the similarities and differences in the lives of teenagers from different cultures.

The over-arching goal of the program is to create meaningful interpersonal interaction through a joint art project, and bring together Jewish youth from Israel and the United States. The program offers an opportunity to "meet" (online) our partners overseas and learn about each other together. The projects will be presented both at the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC and in an online exhibit.
