Second and Third Grades
Second and third graders participate in our group which meets once a month during the school year for fun events such as Coldstone tours and ice cream making, laser tag and holiday events. Machar -niks begin associating Jewish life and friends with fun.
Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Grades
Move up in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade to meeting once a month for events such as bowling, Chanukah parties, Community Day, and Weekend Fun at Camp Ranch in the woods. It is a wonderful way to develop strong Jewish friendships and connections to the Jewish community. Through joint chapter and regional events, everyone becomes aware of a larger Jewish world while learning how to become a part of it.

Confirmants study with our Rabbi monthly, mentor younger children and participate in community service projects together.

Our program allows teens in grades 9-12 to gain leadership experience and skills working with children one-on-one, in a classroom setting, and with special school projects as an aid in the Torah School. Teens make a commitment for the year and are matched up with a particular class to assist the teacher in class projects and day-to-day activities.
