The Mark S. Bertuch “Make-A-Difference” Program, funded by Henri and Rhoda Bertuch, is an outreach program that addresses issues affecting the lives of our pre-teens, adolescents and their parents in a Jewish/spiritual environment.

Issues may include addiction, bullying, sexuality, divorce, self-esteem, peer pressures, internet dangers, and family communication. All teens are affected by one, or many, of these issues no matter how secure the home is.

Programs are designed to develop awareness and educate our youth and their parents in an informal and interactive atmosphere conducive to growth and learning.

The goal is for B’nai Torah Congregation to be a place where our families can find relevance regarding youth issues. These programs will not only educate our youth and their families but will help prevent them from being vulnerable to problems that impact society today.
