Courses at Genesis are unlike any high school classroom learning experience. The courses examine areas of knowledge that begin with an academic discipline as seen through a uniquely Jewish lens. Our faculty lead you through complex, compelling topics that encourage critical thinking and challenge assumptions. Jewish texts, traditions and perspectives infuse your study of subjects ranging from gender to technology to world religions and cultures. This year Genesis will offer:
- *New for 2019* Being the Change: Public Policy, Justice and Advocacy, ready to use your political power to change the world? Learn to advocate, organize, understand U.S. policy, and be a leader for the change you wish to see.
- *New for 2019* Environmental Science Field Immersive, enter the world of scientific discovery, field research, experimentation, and exploration in an era of climate change.
