WHAT IS CTEEN?
A global family of Jewish teens, dedicated to changing the world through acts of goodness, kindness, and just plain fun.
Through a fusion of social events, friendship building events, humanitarian outreach, mitzvah observance, and engaging Torah study, we empower teens to actualize their inner infinite potential, while cultivating a strong sense of Jewish identity, pride, mission, and love of G‑d. So why don’t you give it a shot?
What You’ll Find At CTeen Palisades
We’ve got something for every teen, whether you’re into hanging out or working hard, staying local or traveling far.
LOCAL AND REGIONAL EVENTS
While we’ll obviously be hanging around the Palisades a lot, you’re also going to get the chance to meet teens from high schools all over Southern California on a regular basis through our frequent meetups and Shabbatons.
We spend a lot of time on campus, so keep an eye out for one of our amazing lunch-time or after school clubs, or find us just off campus on Fridays for our famous Challah Corner!
You need service hours for school, and we’ve got them! Come help out CTeen, or volunteer with us every month at places like local senior centers, Tomchei Shabbos, beach cleanups, Friendship Circle, and more!
