Youth Groups

Beth Sholom has Youth Groups for 1st through 12th graders. Our groups provide fun social activities and exciting experiential learning in a Jewish environment. Whether we are bowling or collecting school supplies for children in need, we enjoy doing it together. Our youth groups are 1st to 4th grade, 5th to 7th grade and 8th to 12th grade. Contact Julie Glass at for information on our Youth Groups.
