Youth Groups

Youth groups at B’nai Jehudah give our students the chance to come together throughout the year for learning, fun, community, service opportunities, and social time, all in an effort to help participants build and strengthen lifelong friendships with each other and deepen their connection with Reform Judaism.

We offer four youth groups, divided by grade level:

  • 2nd-3rd Grade
  • 4th-5th Grade
  • 6th-8th Grade
  • 9th-12th Grade

Each youth group follows their own schedule of monthly events; from stargazing and s’mores making under the stars in our Mitzvah Garden, to field trips to roller rinks and escape rooms, there’s always something fun going on with our youth groups!

For more information about our youth groups, please contact Rabbi Brazner, or Religious School Administrator Kelley Cowman.


We are excited to offer Shul-Ins (overnights) at B’nai Jehudah for our 4th-8th grade youth groups! We will host dinner, play games (Gaga, Nine-Square, and more!), enjoy dessert and other activities (including a movie on our big screens!), and then sleep in the Social Hall or Chapel. Bond with your classmates, see what the building looks like after dark (flashlight tag anyone?!), and bring your sleeping bag!
