A Message from our Director of Youth Engagement:

Temple Emanu-El teen programming offers a variety of programs and opportunities so that every teen can find a way to stay connected to our community. While we would love teens to join all of our programming, it is designed so that each teen can find the areas and programs that they are most interested in and participate where they feel comfortable and as their busy schedule allows. 

We have a mix of social, educational, and volunteers opportunities and will continue to add events as the year progresses. 

If you have any questions or want to talk please contact me at Schwartzbard@templeemanu-el.com.

Teens Visit Rockleigh Jewish Home

One of our most impactful and meaningful teen volunteer programs has been connecting our teens with local seniors at the Jewish Home at Rockleigh. This is a great opportunity for our teens to uplift and engage with seniors who eagerly await their arrival.

This year we have 6 visits planned, the first of which will take place on Sunday, October 9th from 10:15-11:30 AM, and we hope that your teen will join us!
