    Why Yachad


    Yachad (the Hebrew word for together) is a collaborative program for teens in 9-12th grades from across Minneapolis. Yachad is the education program for all of our teens together. Eleven Minneapolis organizations collaborate together to provide one Jewish communal program for our teens. From more than ten local high schools, our teens come together weekly to eat, learn and socialize with other teens from across the metro area.
