Cteen UWS is a judgement-free zone, where each teen is welcomed.
Away from the pressures of school and other responsibilities, Cteen provides a warm environment to
form strong friendships and foster Jewish pride. Through trips, Shabbatons, social events and volunteering, teens have the opportunity to connect with themselves and their community.
At the International Shabbaton in February, teens have the opportunity to meet the
other 630 Cteen chapters from around the world.
Eliyahu and Shayna Sapo are co-directors of Cteen UWS. They live on the West Side with their two boys, Mendel and Zalman.
Eliyahu grew up in Southern California and is one of 10 siblings. He is passionate about Jewish values, helping others, and connecting with fellow Jews.
He has been involved with Cteen Internationally since 2015, chaperoning Shabbaton as well as Cteen Extreme and Heritage Trips. When he's not hanging out with his family you can find him on the basketball court.
Shayna (Alevsky) grew up on the Upper West Side and has been involved in this community for the longest time. She has taught at the women's seminary Machon Alta in Israel, and at the local Kivun and Hebrew School. She enjoys learning new things, exploring the city and spending time with their two sons.
