Youth Groups

Temple Beth Shalom offers a wide variety of exciting afterschool youth group activities. Designed to empower our youth to live Reform Judaism outside of Religious School, our programs create fun and meaningful Jewish experiences for elementary through high school aged youth. Coming to Club 45  (4th & 5th graders),  TABSY Jr. (6th & 7th graders), and TABSY (8th-12th graders) events is a great way for youth to engage and connect with other Jewish teens in an informal and social Jewish environment.

Have a child in grades K-3 who want their own "youth group" style shenanigans? You're in luck! A few times a year we host “Tiny TABSY” events on the same date as Club 45 and TABSY Jr. youth group events. Registration for kids in grades K-3 will be emailed out prior to each individual event. Please check your emails for details about these events.

For more information about our youth groups, please contact Sarah Abrams at sarah.abrams@bethshalomaustin.org.

 

Upcoming Events

 

 

Students in grades 3-7 will get to choose from 4 different programs, based on their interests. These programs are done in partnership with URJ Specialty Camps- Creative Arts, Sci-Tech, and 6 Points Sports. 

Option 1: Join Carly from URJ Creative Arts for a character and setting writing workshop. Participants will work together to create a character and then place that character in a specific setting. The session will also focus on the importance of sensory detail in describing people and places.

Option 2: Join Lila from URJ Creative Arts for a movement and dance workshop. Lila will lead interactive activities to move your body. No dance experience required--just be ready to have fun!

Option 3: Join Nina from 6 Points Sports for a rousing night of Sports Trivia. Nina will be your quizmaster, and kids will compete in 2 rounds. Trivia will include all sports, as well as Texas specific sports trivia.

Option 4: Join Jayme from Sci-Tech for a night of surprise science experiments. Last year, Jayme set our Education Director's hands on fire, so you never know what kind of wacky tricks she has up her sleeve!

Please register and tell your friends. We will be giving away prizes to kids that tell and bring the most friends in each grade.

Register by Nov.12th: https://www.bethshalomaustin.org/form/speciality-camps-night.html

 


Teens Reflect on the 2019 NFTY Convention 

The annual convention for NFTY -The Reform Jewish Youth Movement is known to shape the future of the Reform Movement, and this year's convention did just that. From introducing new Jewish music to mobilizing thousands for gun violence prevention, immersing in innovative learning and building practical skills for youth engagement - every minute was filled with glimpses of the bright Jewish future these young leaders will build. See a recap from our own Temple Beth Shalom youth who attended the convention below...puns and all!
