Yom Rishon, 23 Shevat 5777

Religious EqualityTemple Israel proudly boasts one of the most successful youth programs in the area. All youth activities are planned with one goal in mind: to help participants connect to their Temple community. Our three programs serve students in grades 5-12 with various social, religious, and community service events throughout the year. Children and teens are able to develop lifelong friendships with their Temple peers, as well as students from other communities in the Greater New York area and around the country. While most activities are designed for each age bracket independently, several events bring the various groups together for unique social opportunities. Generous grants and scholarships allow students to attend Jewish summer programs to deepen their Jewish soul.Adults can participate in the youth activities of the Temple through the Youth and College Committees. The Youth Committee guides the Youth Group advisors in programming and policy matters. The College Committee is responsible for sending care packages to the Temple's college students at Chanukah and Purim and for ensuring that our students stay connected to their Temple home. For more information, contact Youth Committee Co-Chairs Richard Stoerger (richard@ada-usa.com) or Richard Balik (rbalik@generalglass.com), or College Committee Chair Dianne Heaps (dheaps@verizon.net).
