The pursuit of social justice is the cornerstone of the Temple Sinai Youth Program, which serves students in grades three through 12.
The Youth Program provides opportunities for our young people to engage in meaningful service, which helps them develop the personal relationships central to a strong community. Participation 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, when our teens collect clothing from the Temple community and deliver it to homeless people in New York City, along with meals they prepare.
Our Youth Program also focuses on community building through the celebration of Jewish culture, Shabbat, and holiday observances and social events.
Students in grades three through six focus on building community. Through fun social programs, we help build lasting bonds and meaningful relationships among our youth.
