Youth Programs

Like us on Facebook

 

The purpose of the youth programs at Temple Israel is to interlink the home, school, community and congregation. Our youth activities offer a unique opportunity to stimulate educational, spiritual growth, and social development within a Judaic environment. The programming is designed to offer the individual the chance to promote self-identity within an ever-changing world and to express oneself in a fun and safe atmosphere. The purpose of the total educational program, formal and informal, builds a foundation for young Jews to strengthen their affiliation and identification.

This coming year we have an exciting and ambitious program of social, religious, athletic, recreational, and cultural activities for our young people. For our 6th-12th graders, we have also rejoined with USY and Kadima, HaNegev Region, and will be traveling to various state-wide and regional conventions and Shabbatons.

To join us, download our Youth Program Membership form now and mail to the Temple Israel office (4901 Providence Road, Charlotte, NC 28226) or send by email to ajohnathan@templeisraelnc.org.
