High School Grades 8-12

The Middle and High School years are vitally important to Jewish identity formation.

Teens benefit from a multi-faceted approach to exploring Judaism as they navigate their way from childhood to young adulthood. Our teen program includes formal and informal education, social justice opportunities, travel, social programs, and the chance to meet other Reform Jewish teens regionally and nationally.
