Jewish communal life is as significant for our youth as it is for our adults. In our world today, with increasing pressures and competitiveness, our youth need a safe space to call home, to ask questions, seek thoughtful answers, explore their spirituality and growth, and socialize in meaningful ways.

We are committed to the United Synagogue Youth, the Conservative movement’s national youth organization, and its Regional and Sub-regional activities, our award winning local USY chapter, Camp Ramah Darom, and more. We offer youth groups for all ages, under the supervision of a Youth Director and Five Youth Advisors.

Chalutzim (Pioneers) - Our youth group for children in Kindergarten through 2nd grades. Chalutzim meets once a month with the goal of creating and fostering Jewish friendships. Join the Chalutzim Facebook page.

Atid (Future) - Our youth group for children in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. Atid meets once a month with the goal of bringing a Jewish aspect to our participants' friendships. Join the Atid Facebook page.
