Teen Programs

6th –7thgrade
Chalon L’Atid (Window into the Future) is an educational, social, and leadership program with the suburban congregations. Through these experiences, our teens will emerge with a stronger sense of Jewish identity, and the knowledge and skills to lead meaningful Jewish lives.

8th – 12th grade
Madrichim- (“guides”, our teacher assistant program) Teens can also be involved in Jewish life at Beth El through our Madrichim, teacher assistant program. This program will help the teens build the skills needed to become Jewish role models for our students. Their efforts can really make a difference in each student's religious school experience and also help him/her develop a positive sense of Jewish identity.

BEFTY Youth group and ISJL enrichment learning
Our 8th – 12th graders are actively involved with our youth group, BEFTY. Before meetings and activities, lunch and learn opportunities are offered that lead to Confirmation and High School graduation. The curriculum is from ISJL, themes vary from Jewish Culture, Israel, Tikun Olam – Social Action, and Comparative Religions. The teens work with the rabbi to create the curriculum. It is very interactive and lots of fun!
