6th Grade
Noar Sunday & Hebrew
As the oldest group at Noar Sunday, 6th graders have a program especially tailored for them. They serve as their own eydah (unit), which includes age-appropriate experiential learning, more field trips, and opportunities to serve as leaders for younger students. 6th graders continue one of the
three Hebrew options, as well

Alabama Trip
6th graders become a community while learning about Jewish values and the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama from November 2-3, 2019.

See below for information about SINAI678, our youth group for 6th-8th graders. 

7th Grade
Action Days
Sinai 7th Graders will gather monthly on Sunday afternoons to put our Jewish values into action. Starting with a pizza lunch and learning at Sinai, everyone will board a bus and head to a location in the metro-Atlanta area to make a difference in our community through hands-on social action work.

Dinner Club
A bi-monthly Dinner Club at various restaurants in Sandy Springs- hang out with your friends, eat, and enjoy the night together!

Learn more about Better Together for 7th and 8th graders, as well as SINAI678, our youth group for middle schoolers.

8th Grade
Bina (Understanding): How To Listen, Debate, and Think About The Compelling Issues of the Day!
Join Rabbi Brad to explore how we think about some of the challenges experienced in our society. We will do a deep-dive as they study, debate and explore insights into a host of hot topics. Through Jewish values, we will navigate the compelling issues of our day. The course will allow the students to delve into a meaningful discussion that will help them form their own opinions (Bina). The class will be broken into two components: Semester 1 will deal with social issues; Semester 2 will deal with moral issues. Sign up for either or both.

Cincinnati Trip
8th Graders are invited on an epic road trip December 6-8, 2019 to Cincinnati, Ohio, the birthplace of Reform Judaism, to eat, shop, pray, and bond as a grade. Teens will connect with their peers, walk in the footsteps of history, visit the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, experience another Jewish community, and more.

Starting in 8th grade, we have multiple opportunities for leadership. Go here to find out about our SINAI678 Advisory Board and Madrichim program.

SINAI678 connects our middle school community and serves as an introduction to older teen youth groups and programs. SINAI678 holds events once a month, creating a fun, engaging community where everyone has a place and feels welcome. We can’t wait to see you! Events have included: regressive dinner (dessert first), teen lounge, escape room, donut party, and color war.

7th & 8th Grade First Better Together Cohort
Join this multi-generational experience for senior adults & 7th and 8th graders. Built around the power of storytelling, this new program is designed for pre-teens/teens and the seniors in our community to build relationships, share stories, and connect to the history of Temple Sinai and Jewish Atlanta. Temple Sinai has a committed senior community who has preserved Temple Sinai’s history through photos, documentation, and other artifacts, and will pass this shared history to the next generation while students connect their own personal identity to the rich history of the Reform movement.

SINAI678 Advisory Board: 8th Graders
This enthusiastic board will help plan the SINAI678 events, recruit members, and build a community of friends.
Deadline for Applications: Friday, August 9

Madrichim: 8th-12th Graders
Temple Sinai’s Madrichim (Teaching Assistants) Program is for students who will be in 8th-12th grade during the 2019-2020 school year. The Madrichim Program will not only enhance your Jewish knowledge and identity, but also enhance the Noar Sunday and/or Noar Hebrew experience for children PreK through 6th grade. By becoming a Madrich/a, you will serve as a Teacher Assistant in one of our Noar Sunday and/or Noar Hebrew programs on Sundays. Madrichim help teachers with daily activities, such as leading small groups, taking attendance, helping with hands on learning projects, working with students who may need extra attention, and most importantly, serving as a Jewish role model for our kids!
