PeninsulaClub Z Office 1055 Riverton Drive San Carlos , CA 94070 [email protected] www.clubz.org Executive director Masha Merkulova (650) 575-4224 [email protected] Deputy director Devora Fine [email protected] Inspires Jewish teens to find their pro-Israel voice. Born from the need to create a platform for Jewish teens to connect with each other and be social about loving Israel, the club raises modern-day Zionists to become active participants in today’s Jewish story, as expressed in the creation, development and support of the modern Jewish nation state. Club Z Institute is an academic program that is available to any Jewish teen who is interested in the topic of Israel and is 13-18 years old. A robust and relevant curriculum creates a space for teens to question and explore their personal connection as well as the community’s role in the story of the Jewish nation. The Teen Board leadership track provides personal and professional development for mature teens who are ready to take on additional responsibility of being a leader. Annual Youth Zionist Leadership Forum attracts teens from all over the United States and brings forth thought leaders and thinkers who challenge old narratives and preconceptions and inspire teens to be both proud of their heritage and be pro-active in their lives.
