Youth Groups

JUNIOR YOUTH COMMITTEE (K-7)

Temple Beth El’s Junior Youth Committee is designed to promote a strong sense of community within Temple Beth El for our kindergartners through 7th Graders.  The Committee’s primary objective is to encourage our children's desire to be involved in their Jewish community at a young age.  We are achieving this goal by offering a wide variety of social and community-based activities for children within this age group.  The activities offered to our children in grades K-7 including basketball teams, movie nights, speakers, sports day, music and art programs, cooking programs, and so much more.  Through these activities, the Junior Youth Committee provides Beth El’s children in grades K-7 with the opportunity to gain team-building skills, build friendships, and fully understand and appreciate the value of being part of a Jewish Community.
