YOUTH PROGRAMS We offer plenty of opportunities for our children and teens to connect, learn, grow and have fun!

Youth Groups

SLJ has a Youth Group for every child from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Our Youth Group members connect with each other through social activities, making memories and friends that last a lifetime. Our major emphasis on fun and friendships helps lead our members to become happy, well-rounded adults with a positive, lifelong Jewish identity. Our youth groups build character, provide meaningful experiences, and have lots of fun all at the same time. Plus, there is always food!

Every student in our school is automatically a member of their age-appropriate youth group, so there is no reason to wait to join in the fun!

Generation Tech

This intergenerational program matches our techy teens with non-tech savvy members looking for help navigating our ever-changing digital world. Get help managing smart phones, emails, social media, streaming services and more with these one-on-one learning sessions.

Madrichim

  • Grades: 8-12

Our congregation’s young adults have the opportunity to develop as leaders and role models by serving as madrichim (teaching assistants) in our younger grades. Beginning in 8th grade, madrichim work with SLJ teachers in both Judaics and Hebrew classes assisting the teachers with instruction and classroom activities. Positions are also available with our enrichment teachers and in the school office. If any madrich/a is interested in pursuing special education as a career, they may be given opportunities to work with students who have learning challenges. Madrichim gain valuable experience in responsibility, communication, patience, compassion and organization while earning community service hours.

For more information please contact Rachel Sherman at 561.241.1484.
