Seventeen Jewish teens from 13 schools spent their spring break writing, filming, acting in and editing an anti-bullying video through Springboard , a new initiative to increase the number of Chicagoland teens engaged in Jewish life.
At JCC Camp Chi in Lake Delton, Wisc., participants in StudioChi learned about the filmmaking process, Jewish values and social media under the guidance of filmmaker Kobi Swissa. The group decided to focus their project on cyber-bullying, drawing on the Jewish values of kavod (respect) and chesed (kindness).
