Temple Sholom offers social, educational and interactive programming for its youth community to help create long-lasting friendships and to develop a strong connection to the Jewish community.
2nd–4th Grade Youth Programs
Youth programming for 2nd–4th graders takes place on a monthly-basis, usually on Sundays from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm following religious school. Examples of past programs include Challah Baking, an Art Palooza, Cupcake Wars, a Winter Beach Party and a Chocolate Seder.
3rd–6th Grade Creative Arts Lab
Creative Arts Lab is a new program for 3rd–6th graders that encourages all different kinds of artistic expression and creative thinking. The first session took place in Fall 2017 and was supervised by music specialist Adam Feder and Youth Advisor Rabbi Chaya. Kids had the option to be behind the camera or in the spotlight as they made their own music video. The short version of the video can be viewed here; the long version can be viewed here. Creative Arts Lab's second session runs from December 2017 to March 2018 and will focus on the creation of a multi-media presentation for Purim.
5th–6th Grade Club FiveSix
Club FiveSix was launched in September 2017 as a dedicated hangout group for 5th and 6th graders. Club FiveSix meets on a monthly-basis and hosts social programs such as pizza parties, competitive games and trivia, laser tag and holiday-themed hangouts.
Our Youth Lounge is located on the lower level and is a great space for our youth programs! The Lounge is equipped with a ping pong table, foosball, air hockey, video games and a big screen TV.
