BJ teens from all over the city and different schools come together through their interest in leadership, community service, and Jewish values. There are a variety of activities to meet the interests of most teens, and they are welcome to initiate their own ideas. Dozens of teens make lifelong friends here.
Our youth leaders are great role models who really relate to teens. They are committed to strengthening teens’ interest in Judaism and Social Action/Social Justice, but they are also fun to be with. Our successful programs stimulate and challenge our teens, provide pathways to live consciously and to be involved with the Jewish community and the greater world.

This program uses Jewish teachings to give girls a place to feel safe, have fun, and be real with their peers. Through discussion, arts & crafts, and more, the girls draw on Jewish values and a gender lens to explore issues such as body image, friendship, relationships, family, competition, and stress. BJ currently offers groups for individuals entering 6th-12th grade, Register here.
