Yoga
Dianne Benmayor 

An exploration of Jewish Yoga. Some questions often asked: Is Yoga kosher? (YES!) What is Jewish Yoga? We will explore different types of Jewish Yoga including Mussar Yoga, Torah Yoga, Kabalah Yoga etc. Be prepared to move and explore different styles of Jewish Yoga and meditation and how Judaism and Yoga complement each other and have connections. Our goal for this class is to monitor COVID numbers and if we are able, students will have the option to remove masks during practice once they are safely on their Yoga mat. Mats will be kept 6 feet apart. Space is limited. 

Future Creating the new Hebrew High School

Impact and Atmosphere of Sports in Israel

The Most Misunderstood Country on Earth
Rabbi Smolkin

In this course, we will expand our understanding of Israel. We will explore the powerful and engaging new book by Israeli actress, producer and activist Noa Tishby': "A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth." And there will even be an opportunity to take part in a community-wide event to see Noa Tishby in person, right here in Cincinnati.

MakerSpace: Jewish Mosaic
Samara Katz

Jews have been using the artform of mosaic for centuries to tell their stories and create Judaica. In this hands-on MakerSpace, students will learn the skills and techniques to create Judaica through both conventional and unconventional materials.

What would you do?
Rabbi Danziger

When does other people’s business become mine?  When is it safe for me to be involved?  When should I speak my mind and when is it right to stay quiet?  Who we are and the impact we make are partly defined by what we do – or don’t do – in certain important moments.  This class will use video clips and other sources that ask us, “What would you do?” and we’ll explore the voices of our tradition, our society, our classmates, and ourselves to help us be ready when those moments come.

Magic, Mysticism and Monsters
Jeffrey Silverstein

Despite Jewish law forbidding witchcraft and wizardry, Judaism has it’s own mystical and magical customs. Magic, Mysticism, and Monsters in Judaism is a class dedicated to learning about these cool secret Jewish traditions! As a class, we’ll travel through time from the earliest ancient Israelite magic to contemporary practices of Kabbalah. This class aims to be hands -on with opportunities to cast spells, interpret astrology, and create monsters.

Going to Israel, now what?
Lior Binyamin

You have signed up for a summer or semester in Israel. You have a packing list and passport - now what? This course will focus on what you want to know for when you land in Israel as we focus on your interests and how they overlap with the complex and unique country that is Israel. 

CIT Training – Part two
Rand Burke

The CIT Training Course will engage students who are entering CIT programs at GUCI or Camp Livingston. Working in cooperation with GUCI and Livingston staff, this course will explore topics such as Jewish identity, leadership, programming, and self-confidence to prepare incoming counselors-in-training for their summers working with staff. This course intends to foster opportunities for students to grow and learn through projects, workshops, and other camp-style activities. Most importantly, students will have opportunities to engage with and develop their Jewish identities in the context of Jewish summer camp and their new role as CITs. Students who complete this year-long course and work at camp during the summer of 2022, will receive a $500 bonus for the summer. If you work somewhere other than Livingston or GUCI please be in touch with Nina Loftspring to finalize payment. Working at summer camp is a requirement to receive the funds, however it does not need to be Livingston or GUCI. Open only to those seniors who completed the first semester course.
