Sacred Choices: Adolescent Relationships and Sexual Ethics is a comprehensive curriculum designed for congregations and camps to use to teach sexual ethics to teens.
Our teens live in a culture in which the societal boundaries about
what is sacred and what is to be saved for adulthood or marriage have
changed. They are continually confronted by pressures to conform and
participate in activities and behaviors for which they may not be
physically or emotionally ready. In few places where teens spend their
time are there opportunities to talk openly and honestly about such
issues or to develop their own sense of personal sexual ethics. The
synagogue is a natural place for these conversations to take place. Learn more about Sacred Choice>

This is our first year to teach the Sacred Choices curriculum in our Confirmation Academy. As one of the instructors, I am finding it simple to teach and seemingly well received. If we can impact, for the better, even ONE life the effort will be worthwhile. Thank you, URJ, for being so progressive. Shari Williams Myers, Oklahoma City, OK
