          Youth Programs at Etz Chaim


At Congregation Etz Chaim we have an absolutely thriving
and exciting youth program for kids of all ages.

We constantly have fun, engaging and educational activities, including:

  • Our bi-weekly after school learning program:                           
    Mondays at 6:00pm our Youth Director, Yoni Glatt, teaches his "Torah History" class, which takes an in-depth look at the books of the Prophets from both Jewish and historical sources.
  • On alternative Wednesdays at 6:00pm our local NCSY Director, Jennifer Romanoff, teaches her "Talk It Out Torah" class, which is a round table class, delving into hot topics affecting today's Jewish youth, while also looking at halacha as well.

    All classes are open to students in grades 8-12, 
    and pizza and pastries are always served.
    Classes are free and open to non-members.
    No classes in July or August.
  • Our monthly chesed collaboration
    with the Jewish Relief Agency (JRA)
  • Inclusive Shabbat programming for our youths from the moment they start to walk to the moment they walk out the door for college, starting with our fantastic Tot Shabbat program, continuing with our engaging Junior Congregation, and ending with our impressive Teen Minyan (where you'll find the best Chulent in New Jersey :).
  • An incredible monthly Shabbat Magic Workshop, where our kids learn how to do amazing tricks and illusions.

Our Youth Department always has something in the works, be it our out-of-this world chagigahs, Youth Fantasy Football League,  uplifting chesed shabbatons, guest speakers, basketball games, Saturday night activities- the list goes on and on.

At Congregation Etz Chaim, our kids - no matter their religious background - always find a warm, accepting atmosphere.
