Open to K - 3rd Graders
K'tanim, our youngest youth group is open to Kindergarten-3rd graders. Our goal is to support positive peer interactions outside of school, as well infuse communal Jewish values in fun, dynamic, and intentional programming. K'tanim meets about once a month after Religious School for an engaging, social, and impactful activity. Some programs we have done in the past are baking cookies, toy drive, planting your own vegetable and a Purim costume scavenger hunt. We look forward to seeing you at the next youth event!
Open to 3rd - 6th graders
Chaverim, our middle school age youth group is open to 4th - 6th graders. Chaverim means Friends. Our goal is to enhance the relationships that students have begun to make with their peers in Religious School and help them build and connect to the Jewish values that are important to them. Chaverim meets about once a month (on Sundays or Wednesdays following Religious School) for Jewish community building events that are exciting, fun, and thought provoking. Some programs we have done in the past are baking for donation, chocolate making, Chopped, Skyzone, Challah braiding. We look forward to seeing you at an event soon!

Open to 7th - 12th graders
Solelim, our teenage program is open to 7th - 12 graders. Solelim means trail blazer. Our goal is to guide and support our teens as they form their Jewish identities. our programming provides opportunities for community engagement, character building, in depth look at ethics, morals, and values while meeting new people and having a good time. Solelim meets once or twice a month (usually on Wednesdays before Religious School and on the weekend) offering a range of events including social, educational, Jewish, and tikkun olam/community service programs. We are happy to see the teens equally excited about the social action opportunities that we provide if not more than the engaging social activities.
