Religious Understanding in Adolescent Children (RUACH) is a collaborative initiative with six Jewish day schools to explore together how best to promote growth in the areas of students’ relationships with G-d, religious beliefs, and religious actions. With a multi-year investment from the AVI CHAI Foundation, we are working to create deeper spiritual connections for Jewish students and more religious purposefulness in Jewish schools. The RUACH project will connect the theoretical and practical expertise of specialists in religious development at Yeshiva University with the practical experience and knowledge of consultants and practitioners in schools.
