Adat Noar
In Hebrew, "Adat" means community, and "Noar" means young person.  Therefore, Adat Noar is a community of youth.  Adat Noar is a Jewish learning experience for 9th graders conducted throughout the academic year.  It is a cooperative program among congregations of Orange County and Long Beach and the Bureau of Jewish Education of Orange County.  Adat Noar is funded by participating synagogues, the Jewish Federation of Orange County, the Long Beach Jewish Federation, families, and the Bureau of Jewish Education of Orange County.
Adat Noar applications are mailed to you immediately after the 8th Grade Jewish Values Weekend.
Adat Noar is centered around 5 mini-courses.  Each mini-course is comprised of 2 Sunday sessions and a weekend retreat (10 Sunday sessions and 5 weekend retreats total). Adat Noar Sunday sessions are held from 1:45-4:45pm at Tarbut v'Torah High School in Irvine.  Adat Noar weekends are held at the Brandeis-Bardin Institute in Simi Valley.  Bus transportation is provided from several Orange County locations.
