Elementary School and Middle School
Helping your children and grandchildren feel a connection to other kids and the Adat Shalom community is one of my goals. With a team of dynamic youth engagement leaders, it is our intention to plan fabulous social, cultural, and community service experiences that your children would enjoy attending. We do our utmost to create positive Jewish learning and social experiences that meet kids’ and parents’ needs and interests. Participation in these programs helps strengthens your child’s Jewish identity, plus it is fun!
Kids in kindergarten to 4th grade will have fun at Kids’ Afternoon of Fun and Kids’ Night Out events. 5th, 6th to 7th graders will enjoy our programming that is created just for them (e.g. social and volunteer events, like our new BAM: Be A Mensch service programming).
This year’s youth engagement calendar is filled with a fantastic variety of activities.
Older Middle School and High School
We have a variety of options for teens to get involved – whether they are looking for formal educational options or fun social events. 8th to 12th graders enjoy being part of our Madrichim (teacher assistants) program, volunteering with Teen Volunteer Corps, learning and volunteering with Better to Serve, or taking Hebrew for high school and college credit.
In addition to the synagogue’s many offerings, our congregation’s teens are involved in BBYO (www.bbyo.org) and/or USY (mcusy.weebly.com ) as well as many amazing Jewish teen programs throughout the community. A good number also attend Jewish summer camps throughout the region (and country).
