Temple Beth Shalom members, please log in to your account to see current youth events, the madrichimot application, and upcoming TABSY events and initiatives.

Youth Engagement at Temple Beth Shalom builds on our core value of community. Starting with our youngest school-aged kids and continuing through high school graduation, we provide complementary social activities to students' religious education. Youth groups are organized by age group: K-2, 3-5, 6-7, and 8-12. Learn more about our teen-led 8th-12th youth group, TABSY, below.

We want our youth to feel connected to our temple home, one another, and the community at large. We offer several programs throughout the year, based on the child’s grade. We like to offer some events for just kids and some events where parents can join in on the fun. Family events include Shabbat in the Hood and temple celebrations such as Chanukah and Purim.

Each quarter, Temple Beth Shalom offers a Parent’s Night Out. These are social events for kids in K-7th grade. The great part is you can drop your kids off in one place, and enjoy a night out on your own. We group kids by grade: K-2, 3-5, and 6-7. Each grade group has fun, engaging, and age-appropriate activities. Kids get to bond with one another, as well as teachers from Religious School, who chaperone events. Register here for this year's Parents' Night Out events (log in only).

   

Our post-b’nai mitzvah teens (8th-12th grade) also participate in meaningful engagement beyond their early education.  Our madrichimot (log in only) program allows teens to work in Sunday and in Hebrew classes as teacher aides. Teens gain real-world work experience, serve as role models to younger students, and lead activities where they feel comfortable. Teens can choose to work for monetary stipends or community service. In addition to this classroom work being a mitzvah, it looks great on college applications and job resumes.

  

Temple Beth Shalom teens participate in a variety of extracurricular activities throughout the year. Our youth group, TABSY, hosts events once a month, around a mix of social, religious, and humanitarian themes. All teens are welcome, regardless of whether this is their first or tenth event! Log in to your account to see the latest information about upcoming events.
