Chaverim Connections
Grades 3 – 5

Our local Chaverim Connections group is meant for fourth and fifth graders to meet and socialize while also participating in social action projects throughout the year.


Kadima

Grades 6 – 8 

Kadima is the Middle School program that introduces our youth to what they will experience once they begin USY. Middle schoolers are offered a safe, nurturing and supervised environment as they develop into more independent teens while building a foundation for a lasting engagement with Jewish life.

 

USY
Grades 9 – 12 

United Synagogue Youth (USY) is the nationwide youth group for Conservative movement synagogues. It offers high school students the opportunity to engage in immersive experiences on the chapter (local), regional (state), and international level focused on learning, spiritual expression, and social responsibility. This youth group gives our teens the opportunity to socialize with other Jewish teens in town, throughout New Jersey, and throughout the country, highlighted by cross-country summer trips, and trips to Europe and Israel.

 

MAKOM- The Place for Teens to Be
Grades 8 – 12 

Beth El’s post-B’nai Mitzvah education program. Please find details in our Teen Learning section.
