Youth Programs

Beth Shalom offers middle and high school teens opportunities to develop friendships, engage in social action, and deepen their Jewish identity.  Our programs are designed to accommodate the busy schedules and varied interests of teens, so that they can stay connected and involved.  We aim to provide enriching and fun experiences and a supportive environment so that our teens can thrive socially, intellectually, and spiritually.  Through our youth programs, we hope our teens foster a lasting connection to their Jewish heritage and community.




The Madrichim Program

Teens can serve as teacher assistants in the Religious School on Sundays and/or on Tuesdays. They can assist with Judaic lessons, Hebrew, art, music, Tefillah, cooking, and so much more. Our Madrichim Program provides a wonderful opportunity for our teens to share their knowledge and act as role models. If your teen is interested or to learn more, contact Rabbi Edery.
