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!
- 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.
The International Jewish Teen Choir is a youth movement that welcomes Jewishly identified and musically talented teens from a broad range of cultural backgrounds and levels of religious observance. HaZamir offers high schoolers the opportunity to learn and sing Jewish choral music at the highest musical standard and on the world’s greatest stages. Together the singers of HaZamir create harmonious unity and long lasting connections, to one another and Judaism, through excellence in music.
