In addition to our formal Religious School classes and programs, we at Mount Zion of an abundance of engagement opportunities in which youth can be involved in synagogue and Jewish life in a myriad of ways. Our programs strive to foster a safe, inclusive space for youth to connect, learn, lead, and have fun.
We offer three different aged youth groups –Noar Tzion (4th-6th grade), Gesher JYG (7th-8th grade), and SPORTY (9th-12th grade)–that bring together similarly-aged youth for social and social action activities.
Noar Tzion (Grades 4-6)
JYG (Grades 7-8)
Within and outside the walls of Mount Zion, there are a wide variety of opportunities for teens to engage as a young Jewish adults. Through these experiences, teens can explore their Jewish identity, engage in learning and teaching, build and strengthen relationships, participate in the work of Tzedek (social justice) and Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), and develop exceptional leadership skills.
