          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 weekly after school learning program:                           
    Mondays at 5:45pm our Youth Director, Yoni Glatt, teaches his JTEEN University Class. 
  • We actively synergize with NCSY with several teen programs.
    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 yearly 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 :).
  • 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.
