Chaverim (4th-5th Grades)

Chaverim is the building blocks for Kadima. It is a time for boys and girls to get comfortable at temple in a social way. After Hebrew school they can unwind with peers and put their Jewish knowledge to use in fun ways. Activities are planned to engage children in games, sports, arts and crafts, holiday and cultural celebrations and social action projects.

Indoor Passover games & competitions, Simcha Torah dance party, brain twisters, Jewish celebrity game, Yom HaAtzmaut team work challenges and games, showing off your acting and singing talents, and more!

Kadima (6th-7th Grades)

Meets once a month separately on Tuesdays (built into Hebrew school hours with additional programming on Sundays).

Kadima is the international youth organization for Jewish pre-teens. Kadima participants are busy on middle school needs and beginning to prep for Bar/ Bat Mitzvahs. Kadima enriches their lives by giving them plenty of opportunities to have fun with friends and find meaning through working with causes that are important to them. Looking to find interesting volunteering options? Kadima has service hours built right in…visit a food pantry, carwash fundraiser, improve games, cooking for all taste buds, Ga-Ga for Israel and more!
