The Teen Experience

The temple Youth Department believes that Judaism is better lived than studied. Every year, we continue to provide educational and experiential opportunities for Jewish youth that will enable teens to choose and connect with their own unique Jewish journey. Judaism is multi-faceted and ever evolving; we are confident that teens will find meaning, community and growth in our programs listed here or in any additional ideas they share with us.

To celebrate Jewishness is extraordinary. We are beyond excited to explore our teens’ personal and unique relationship with Judaism! Youth begins with you, and we need your input and your presence to be successful. As you read through the activities we provide, please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or ideas.

Now is the time to make yourself stand out during the college application process. One of the best ways to do that is to take part in meaningful programs that do good for your community and are a reflection of your moral character.
