This ebook introduces our series The Tel Yehudah Series on Raising Jewish Teens. Our articles stem from the varied and deep experiences we have each summer charting a path through the teen years, navigating Jewish identity, and leveraging lifelong friendships as they approach adulthood.

>  Finally, we wrap our minds around the merits of the teen community. Even as adults we depend on "our people," those supporters in our lives who've been there through the ups and downs, and who know us best. As you read Turning Connections Into Community, we're sure you'll recall these important communities in your own development, and recognize, their importance to your kids today.
