8th-12th Grade

There are many different ways for teens and their friends to stay connected and get involved this upcoming year at Temple Beth Am. Teens can earn community service hours through volunteering on Sundays and Tuesdays as Madrichim, on Fridays as an AV Teen, and through other opportunities throughout the year.

Our Tuesday Night for Teens and Youth Group programming are great opportunities to see your friends, meet new ones, eat together, learn something new, and have fun. There are also leadership opportunities available to help create programing experiences and connecting teens to cultivate Jewish friendships.

Tuesday Night for Teens: All 8th–12th grade teens are invited to join us every week on Tuesdays from 6:00pm–8:00pm at Temple Beth Am. Every week we will enjoy dinner together and then participate in fun, social, and educational programs. Some highlights for this year will focus on philanthropy, social justice, holiday celebrations, current headlines, and teen-led programing. Every week is different! To stay up to date on each week’s dinner menu and program, check your weekly emails and follow us on Instagram at @jamty.tba!

Madrichim: Volunteer on Sundays and/or Tuesdays during HaMakom’s Religious School. Volunteering is open to 8th–12th graders. Teens will enhance their leadership skills while being mentored by our teachers. Some of the responsibilities are to assist with administrative tasks such as taking attendance, passing out flyers, and preparing supplies. Some of the more interactive tasks may include helping students with projects, leading groups during small group activities, creating mini-lessons with the teacher, reading stories, and working one-on-one with students who may need extra assistance.

JAMTY & JAMTY JR: Our High School and Middle School youth groups meet throughout the year for social programs. Both JAMTY and JAMTY Jr. have leadership councils that meet throughout the year to help plan and lead programs for their peers. Stay tuned for details about our annual kick-off event!

AV Teens: Temple Beth Am is currently looking for teens interested in learning about AV to work during Shabbat Services. Positions include running slides, camera, or lights. Please contact Jackie via email for more information at
