Rabbi Stuart Gershon Teen Program

"This has been a phenomenal year for my son at Temple Sinai. He has grown spiritually, solidified his Jewish roots, and had so many rich, memorable experiences with his peers. And the L’Taken Social Justice seminar in Washington DC wasn't just a highlight of his year, it was a significantly moving event that strengthened his connection to the Jewish community and I'm certain will stay with him as he enters adulthood."

~Parent of Current Temple Sinai High School Student

Temple Sinai is excited to announce a new model for the Rabbi Stuart Gershon Teen Program for 8th-12th Graders.

The Teen Program now includes three options for teens to stay connected with each other and remain engaged with Jewish learning and the Temple Sinai community.

1. Sunday Teen Program - Teens meet from 11:30 am-1:00 pm on Sundays in grade-level groups with their peers to engage in meaningful and interactive learning opportunities related to different themes. Sunday activities will take place in and out of the building and an immersive experience (a fun, educational, and community-building trip!) will be offered for each age cohort to supplement the Sunday experience. Read more about the themes HERE.

2. Madrichim Program-  In this Jewish leadership experience, teens serve as classroom assistants, working with younger children during the early session of religious school on Sundays. Please note, in order to be one of the madrichim, teens must be registered for the Sunday Teen Program as well- please sign up for the Madrichim Program when registering your teen.

3. Teen Trips - There will be two teen trips offered this year. All 8th and 9th graders have the opportunity to participate in the Civil Rights Journey to Georgia and Alabama. All 10th-12th graders have the opportunity to participate in the RAC’s L’taken Social Justice Seminar for Teens. More details about both trips are HERE.

Any teens registering for one of the trips, but not the Sunday Teen Program, need to register for Trip Orientation — 2 Sundays before the trip and 1 Sunday post-trip. The Trip Orientation fee is $150. Please note: Trip Orientation is included in the Sunday teen program tuition so teens already registered for Sundays do not need to pay this additional fee.
