Youth Engagement

Youth logo

Temple Beth-El’s youth clubs foster Jewish connections for students through educational, spiritual and social programming.
We strive to create a safe space for students to explore their Judaism with their friends, adult mentors, and rabbis.
Our diverse calendar allows students to discover new ways to connect to Judaism and feel good about our faith, culture and heritage. 


Kids and teens are more likely to remain engaged in Jewish life when they build positive and meaningful relationships with Jewish friends.
The youth group journey begins in Kindergarten. Come discover how youth club can enrich your Jewish life!


Our Youth Clubs are supervised by Joel Swedlove, Director of Youth Programs and Informal Education
