9th – 12th grades

The Bar/Bat Mitzvah – we tell your children – is not the end of their religious education but a milestone. F2F/USY is the bridge to staying connected to religious school friends and remaining involved with the Temple after 8th Grade.

Students in 9th grade and up join us once a week to schmooze, to learn, to celebrate, to volunteer, to build friendships, and to explore, among others.  They will have fun, make friends, and learn about Jewish living in an informal, engaging way.

When events are hosted at the Temple, we’ll meet weekly on Wednesday nights from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. After catching up over dinner, we will either take part in a mitzvah project, fun activity, session led by Rabbi Kirshner about Israel, the Holocaust or Jewish Ethics or be volunteering our time at the Jewish Home Assisted Living in River Vale.
