Yaldei Shalom Jr. Youth Group

Yaldei Shalom—Middle School Youth Group

Yaldei Shalom, Temple Beth El’s middle school youth group, is a vibrant community made of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Our Youth Group Leader plans gatherings outside of TBE where we can hang out and have fun. In past years, we’ve held chocolate seders, gone ice skating and bowling, and joined NFTY 678 for color wars. Yaldei Shalom serves the TBE community by assisting SPeTY with the Yom Kippur canned food drive, serving dinner at Sisterhood’s Annual Latke dinner, and running the Purim Carnival. Come join us!

As a URJ congregation, we are part of the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY). In the Southern California region, NFTY 678 events occur three times a year. These one-day events are designed to give middle schoolers a taste of NFTY fun. On alternate years, the “West Coast Party Jr.” weekend retreat draws middle schoolers to a wider regional gathering in Northern California.

The following scholarships are available to help defray the cost of the West Coast Party Jr. attendance:

·       Burt & Elaine Margulis Teen Scholarship Fund

·       Peachy and Mark Levy Scholarship  

·       TBE Sisterhood Scholarship

·       Bill Gren Campership Fund - contact Rabbi Chuck or Linda Gren
