The TBR Youth Group is an inclusive social organization for children and teens from Kindergarten through High school from multiple neighboring towns. Our Youth Group Director, Jana Schwartz, offers programs during the monthly meetings with fun themes or festive meals, weekend events, leadership programs, and volunteer opportunities which promote Jewish values. 

TBR Youth Group has something for everyone!  A great Jewish experience and opportunities to foster a close identity with Israel through stories, games, field trips, Shabbat experiences, social events, and exposure to Jewish and Israeli culture. Contact Jana Schwartz, Director for membership information.

On the Feast of Purim Be Happy!

Purim is here and what a great opportunity it is to come down to TBR and celebrate with your friends, family, and community! Games, crafts, carnival food, laser tag, game truck, clowns, prizes and much more will be available for you and the family to enjoy! Our Youth Group is one big happy family, always looking to grow with anyone who wants to join in the fun and happiness. Our Youth Group mentors have been amazing and I send a special hug to all of you! If you or someone you know is interested in joining Youth Group or becoming a Youth Group mentor, please contact me at the temple. I look forward to your calls and smiling faces.

On a Youth Group note: so much has been happening with Jewish Family & Children’s Services visiting and teaching us about bullying and accepting of others. A special thank you to Aya, our Israel Shilach, who has been enforcing the culture of Judaism among our Youth Group participants.

Remember, it’s never too late to come to Youth Group! My motto is - the more the merrier!

TBR youth group is a place to belong - a place to smile, chill, learn, laugh, and grow! Youth group enables our participants to work together, build character and confidence and develop their individual potential in an exciting format. These youth programs offer age-appropriate opportunities such as holiday enrichment activities, games, art, and free discussions. Examples of some fun YG activities to look forward to include: Wacky brain teasers, Game nights, Ice breakers, Chocolate Seder, Candy Sushi, visits from the Shilah, Crab soccer, Yoga, Crazy Twister, and the list goes on…

Our mission is to give all participants an enjoyable Jewish experience while helping them mature and develop as happy, growing, responsible and confident children. TBR youth group is a place to belong for Jewish kids - a youth group that encourages acceptance, character building, guidance, and self-development.

As always, In Friendship and Shalom
