Student to Student is a program where Jewish high school juniors and seniors have the opportunity to fight anti-Semitism, break down stereotypes, and put a human face to Judaism for other high school students, many of whom may never have met a Jewish person. Each year about 120 teens give presentations in high schools that have little or no Jewish presence. During presentations, participants discuss aspects of their lives, including Shabbat observances, holidays, life cycle events, Israel, and kosher dietary practices. Each year the program reaches over 4,000 students in the St. Louis region. JCRC Student to Student is a unique program for Jewish teens, giving them the opportunity to combat bigotry while strengthening their leadership skills and Jewish identity.
