Teen Membership

Temple Beth Am’s Youth Learning and Engagement offers a wide variety of after school, weekend and special interest programs for Los Angeles teens. TBA Teens are empowered to grow intellectually, socially, creatively and emotionally.

Middle school students are offered a safe, nurturing and supervised environment as they develop into more independent teens.

High School students 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 appealing to high school interests.
