Temple Beth Am’s Teen Program offers a wide variety of after school, weekend and special interest programs for teens in our community. TBA Teens are empowered to grow intellectually, socially, creatively and emotionally.

Teens in grades 6th-12th develop leadership skills and build healthy, social bonds through cohort-based learning, youth groups’ experiences rich in spirit, social action, Israel & Jewish ritual, and community social events.

This year’s teen membership looks a little different as we encourage you to invest in our teen community so that we can continue to offer great virtual (for now!) programs such as:

  • Weekly Teen lounges
  • Social programming
  • Shabbat opportunities
  • High Holiday programs
  • Social justice oriented programming
  • Partner programs with other synagogues and organizations

Moving Traditions

Moving Traditions groups promote self-discovery, challenge traditional gender roles, and celebrate a diversity of voices, it has the power to move our teens, our communities, and Judaism forward. Through the field-tested programs, Rosh Hodesh and Shevet Achim, offer groups for boys and girls in 8th-12th grade a unique cohort experience that inspire Jewish teens to openly explore fundamental questions of identity and society throughout their teen years.


Yachad Teens

Through Yachad Teens, TBA 7th-8th grade students continue their Jewish learning into their high school years. Yachad Teens students deepen their connection to Jewish friends within their community. Through interactive learning, participants will enhance their Jewish skills and knowledge, and be challenged to think about how Judaism can bring meaning to their lives and enrich their thinking and decisions.

The Yachad Teens program meets 3 times per month (see the Yachad Teens calendar for specific dates) and comes with Premier Teen Membership for access to teens and USY programs. Yachad Teens provides a safe place for TBA teens to interact with their peers and explore their Jewish identity in creative and meaningful ways. Students discuss current events, teen-related issues, and ‘big questions’ through a Jewish lens.
