Youth & Teens

Youth/Teen Opportunities

Our youth groups are an important part of Temple Beth El’s commitment to engaging our children from ages 5-18. Our youth program offers different groups that present opportunities for TBE Youth to participate in activities structured to foster lifelong Jewish values and forge friendships that last a lifetime.

LIBERTY (Youth Group for Grades 8-12)

LIBERTY (Life In Beth El Reform Temple Youth) is TBE’s Senior Temple Youth Group for teens in grades 8-12. The teen-elected LIBERTY Board organizes and implements programs and experiences with guidance from TBE Staff and Clergy. From outdoor events, lock-ins, and social action projects to meaningful weekend programs through NFTY-SAR with other Jewish teens throughout the Southeast, LIBERTY offers teens a great way to become involved, make life-long friendships and deepen their Jewish identities.

Youth Engagement (Grades K-7)

In addition to our vibrant Religious School program, we host events throughout the year for youth in grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-7 to strengthen Jewish friendships and provide even more opportunities for Jewish joy.

Summer Camp Experiences

There are many summer camp experiences offered to our children. The Union for Reform Judaism has a variety of residential camp programs. Several of these programs are especially popular with Temple Beth El youth: URJ Camp Coleman in Cleveland, Georgia, URJ 6 Points Sports Academy in Asheville, North Carolina, URJ 6 Points Creative Arts Academy in West Chester, PA and URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy in Byfield, MA. Camp Mindy, a day camp for preschoolers through teens, located conveniently in Shalom Park, is offered by the Levine JCC.
