Teen Engagement

Finding ways to have our teens continue with a connection to Jewish life post b'nai mitzvah is a high priority at Shaare Torah. Over the years we have thought creatively about different ways to allow for connection within the synagogue as well as the greater Jewish community. We are excited to offer partnerships or direct opportunities through many different ways.  

  • USY chapter that has won Seaboard Chapter of Excellence award for the past three years!
  • Shaare Torah is proud to be a strong partner with BBYO! We have many of our teens actively involved in leadership roles with multiple different chapters throughout the region.  Annually we co-sponsor regional events and are ALWAYS happy to partner with any of our teens' chapters to host an event at Shaare Torah.
  • Teen Dinners with our Shlicha - Rotem Ur
  • Teen Leadership Institute- Monthly program for ALL teens who consider themselves leaders and want to learn leadership skill through a Jewish lens - email Deb Geiger for more information
  • Teen teachers and Madrichim- Our Religious School is pleased to offer the opportunity for teens to work in a variety of roles, Madrichim (assistants) in elective classes and younger grades, inclusion Madrichim helping shadow our students who need a little extra help, and Hebrew teachers.  Contact Allison Colker, Education Director, for more information.

If you have any other ideas or ways that Shaare Torah can help keep a strong connection for teens and Jewish life feel free to contact Deb Geiger, Director of Engagement.
