Temple Beth El

Summer is far away but plan ahead! If your teen would be a great fit for one of these programs, please encourage them to sign up next summer. There will be scholarship opportunities available. http://nftysummer.org/

We have two youth groups at Temple Beth El, Yaldei Shalom, our youth group for middle school children, and SPeTY, (San Pedro Temple Youth) our high school youth group. 

Our young people need to form social networks among their Jewish peers. Torah School does not fully foster those social networks. In addition, youngsters from Temple Beth El need to meet age mates from other synagogues. SPeTY is formally affiliated with NFTY, the national youth movement of Reform Judaism.
The goals of our youth programs are to: foster social interaction among age mates in the synagogue, cultivate social interaction among age mates from other area synagogues, develop social action programs for youth within the synagogue community and in the general community, and facilitate trips to places of Jewish and general interest.  

This year our youth groups will coordinate our food collection for Yom Kippur, serve dinner at Sisterhood’s Hanukkah Latke dinners, coordinate our annual Purim Carnival, have social events throughout the year, and lead other tzedakah projects for our synagogue community.
