Teens Together

  • Confirmation Program (Grades 8 – 10)
  • Post Confirmation/Service Learning (Grades 11 – 12)

The Teens Together Program, for 8th through 10th graders, has celebrated more than 10 exciting years of helping students become valued and successful members of the Jewish Community.

Under the direction of Rabbi Saul Grife, we offer our BTBJ teens an age-appropriate and varied program that enables them to remain connected to their Jewish studies and the BTBJ community. On Wednesday evenings they socialize, experience relevant Jewish learning and participate in community service projects for two hours. The three-year program aims to develop teens into committed life-long Jewish learners and concludes with a meaningful and beautiful Confirmation service at Shavuot.

Additionally, there is a service learning program for 11th and 12th grade students. Meeting one Wednesday evening a month for two hours at BTBJ, these teens earn 18 hours of community service credit, academic credit and participate in the mitzvah of helping those in need.
