Being a part of the CTeen facebook page has been wonderful. I can talk to other teens just like me, and everyone is very supportive and kind. The page has also really helped me stay in contact with teens I meet at CTeen events, and we all help each other keep Judaism in our lives. Before joining CTeen, I felt like the only teen that practiced Judaism, and CTeen has allowed me to meet other teens who feel the same way and it's great knowing that there are others who feel the same way I do!

Last year, our fourteen-year-old son went to CTeen in NY. He raved about it for a year and could not wait to go back. This year, we sent him and his sixteen-year-old sister, and, once again, they had the greatest time. We live in a community that is mostly not Jewish. This gives our kids a chance to meet other Jewish teens from all areas of the country. We highly recommend this program. They were always in a safe and warm environment.

CTeen has instilled pride, maturity, respect, and a sense of belonging to my boys. It is a great program that embraces individuality and complements it with experience and faith.

CTeen is as good as its leaders and Rabbi Karp, Rivkah and Mirel are fabulous in every way. They set a great example to our teenagers and make each person feel important. Thank you for all you are doing for our community.

As a junior in high school, I have been exposed to many Jewish teen groups. But after my first CTeen Shabbaton, I realized that CTeen was the group for me. It was so great meeting people from around the world. I walked away so happy with my experience, that I didn't even want to leave. I can't wait for the next Shabbaton! :)
