Teen Programming: 7th through 12th Grade


Our 7th graders study on Sunday from 9:30-11:00, which includes tefillah. In addition, they study privately with the Cantor as they continue their preparation to become Bar/Bar Mitzvah. Curriculum for Judaica focuses on the lessons and history of the Holocaust as well as the study of the history and development of the State of Israel.

Kesher: A Jewish Teen Experience for teens 8th through 12th Grades
(A Community learning opportunity for High School students)

The Kesher program promotes community learning for our High School student’s grades 8th – 12th. The students get to know each other by meeting twice a month, for twelve sessions, beginning in October, at the N. E. Miles Jewish Day School to share dinner and learning. During each session, students will participate in an elective class along with an all-group content-based activity. Each elective will be a current topic of interest.

In addition, students will participate in two community mitzvah projects to be done on a Sunday. The students will be part of the decision about what they will do. We also hope to take a community trip if possible.

Day and Time: Thursday evenings 5:30-7:30 pm


Students in 10th grade prepare for their Confirmation which is held in the season of Shavuot in the Spring. Classes are taught by the Rabbi as part of our community Kesher program, focusing on the student’s Jewish journey, their relationship with God, and lessons of Jewish values along with the meaning of Confirmation in their lives.
