HUB engages teens in Grades 7-12 to deepen their Jewish knowledge, leadership skills, spirituality and social connection to their peers. At Temple Sinai, we want our teens to be prepared for the world, ready to inspire those around them with compassion, as well as to develop a strong sense of self and Jewish identity. Through HUB, they will discover and grow their leadership skills by expanding their minds and opening their hearts.  HUB has different tiers of the “opt-in” so it’s flexible for our busy teens.

Goals:

• Engage teens to deepen their Jewish knowledge
• Hone their leadership skills
• Explore their spirituality
• Connect socially to other Jewish peers

Confirmation provides an ideal setting for 10th graders to explore their Judaism together with Rabbi Brad Levenberg and our Confirmation staff. Confirmation allows teens to explore the relevance and importance of enduring topics related to Jewish identity such as God, Torah, Israel and more. The Confirmation year includes both an opening retreat in Atlanta as well as a much-anticipated class trip to New York in the spring and culminates with a special Confirmation service in March.

11th and 12th Grade – Monthly Dinner Club
Wednesdays, once a month, 6:00 pm-7:30 pm
