a soulful place for friends, fun, and
becoming the leader you were meant to be.
A SUPPORTIVE PLACE TO BE WHO YOU ARE
BESTY’s primary value is that at all of our events, you feel like you can be yourself. We know that it high school, there is a pressure to try to fit in and to be liked. Our teen leadership board, youth director, and rabbis are deeply committed to creating an inclusive space where your unique presence and contribution is appreciated.
A SOULFUL PLACE
The unique opportunity of a synagogue community is a place to explore what is meaningful and important in life. Our BESTY teen leadership board will pick a handful of topics that our teen community wants to explore and will offer some fun events with our warm and spiritual rabbis to discuss. Our Shabbat Club experiences in our youth lounge and at people’s homes are informal environments for singing and celebration.
A FUN PLACE
Whatever fun activities you envision, we can make a reality. In addition to our monthly Sunday program be prepared for:
- Weeknight study sessions in our youth lounge
- Broomball overnights
- Professional sport outings
- Yogurt and a Movie
- Our infamous Club night
- Anything our youth leadership board can dream up
A PLACE FOR LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
Many teen programs are places to just places to connect socially and hang out. Our perspective is that teens have an important contribution to make to our synagogue community and the wide world. BESTY is unique in that our core programming fulfills middle and high school community service requirements. In both the 8th Grade Tzedakah Board and 9th-12th Grade Teen Leadership Program, teens learn the skills necessary to transform vision into action, supported by the wisdom of our Jewish tradition.
COST: $395 for the year
8th Grade Tzedakah Board $695/yr
I look forward to an forging a deeper connection with you and your teen.
