The pursuit of social justice is the cornerstone of the Temple Sinai Youth Program. Serving students in grades 3-12, there are monthly events for high school students and bi- monthly for students in younger grades. Additionally there are a number of different leadership opportunities for high school students. We provide opportunities for our young people to engage in meaningful service which helps them develop the personal relationships which are central to a strong community. Participating in our program strengthens both their personal commitment to Judaism and their connection to the Jewish community.
The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism’s L’Taken Seminar in Washington, DC is one example of this type of programming. Our high school students spend three days learning about Jewish values and social justice before going to Capitol Hill to lobby to our elected officials. Another example is the annual Midnight Run in which our teens collect clothing from the Temple community and deliver it to homeless people in New York City along with meals they prepare.
In addition to social justice, our Youth Program also focuses on community building through the celebration of Jewish culture, Shabbat and holiday observances and social events.
Our program for grades 3-6 focus on community building. Through fun social programs we help build lasting bonds among our youth. Our youth program helps them get to know each other and create meaningful relationships.
