Youth Groups

From our youth director –

“Hello! I am so excited to continue to work with youth at BHSS! I am grateful for the mentors and role models that helped shape me when I was in youth group during high school. I am eager to meet everyone!


Hi everyone!

Can you believe we’re already at the end of the school year?

A huge thank you to goes out to the Senior Youth Group and Brotherhood for putting on an amazing Purim Carnival in March – it was a total blast! Thank you for all of your food donations and feedback.

We are always collecting clothing, shoes, and canned goods for the Midnight Run. As you clean out your closets, feel free to leave some of these goods in the education wing. We will do another Midnight Run next school year, and hope you can join us!

Look in your email, the weekly BHSS newsletters and on social media for information on upcoming events. Follow us on Instagram! bhsstyinsta

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and safe summer!

About our Youth Groups:
Beth Haverim Shir Shalom offers Jewish youth programming for grades 3-12. Membership is open to all Jewish children grades 3 -12, regardless of temple membership/affiliation. The programming includes interactive social and Judaic programming, which is designed to enhance the Jewish experiences and identities of our members. We seek to further these goals: to unite the youth of the Beth Haverim Shir Shalom membership and membership region; to provide the youth with an environment in which they are able to learn about the culture, religious and social aspects of Reform Judaism; to build for its individual members richer Jewish identities through a heightened religious consciousness and fuller knowledge of our Jewish heritage; to develop an awareness of, an interest in moral, religious and social aspects of Reform Judaism and their relevance to today’s society; and to prepare the members of the group for responsible Jewish adulthood and for intelligent and loyal shouldering of responsibilities of mature members of their congregations and their communities.For more information write the youth director at [email protected]

The Menschmakers is open to grades 3-6. There are both in-temple and out-of-temple varied events.  Menschmakers programming includes community service, too!

The Senior Youth Group, BHSSTY, is open to grades 7-12. There are both in-temple and out-of-temple events. Some events which we have enjoyed are laser-tag, monster mini-golf, game nights, popcorn and movie nights, karaoke party, camping, water parks, and so much more.  Students in these grades can also participate in select NFTY events!
