Teen Life at East End Temple

East End Temple’s teens connect for social programs, community service, travel opportunities, and the chance to take a break from the intensity of school and off-site opportunities, In addition to hangouts, trips, and special programs, the youth program begins each week over dinner with the Rabbi and Youth Director and a lively conversation about life, big questions, and current events through a Jewish lens.

See what we’re up to at EET! Even if you are not yet registered, come stop by and see what everyone loves about it.

In the last several months, East End Temple has seen an explosion of teen engagement through our youth programs. From chalking the entrance to the building with personal expressions of Judaism to discussing Talmud on the High Line, EET’s teenagers are building a community that celebrates Jewish identity and encourages self-discovery. To that end, our young congregants are planning and leading peer-driven activities dedicated to the mission and values of the East End Temple community.

In addition to neighborhood scavenger hunts, game nights, and field trips, the East End Teens program engages in an ongoing discussion of social justice in a Jewish context. Our staff also works to connect Jewish youth with service, cultural, and educational opportunities in the New York area and beyond.
