Participating in some or all of Temple Emanu-El’s Senior Youth Group activities
is a great way to make friends, experience one’s Jewish cultural identity and live one’s Jewish values.
“The Senior Youth Group board helps us teenagers to grow and mature before we set out into the real world. Even though we are not yet of age, we all have helped contribute to healing the world that we will one day be adults in: with every tree we plant in a local park, every lunch we pack for a person in need, and every beach we clean for the health and safety of our ecosystem.”
— Julia Slaff, Senior Youth Group
The Senior Youth Group Board is the heart of our Grade 9–12 community. Members meet regularly to organize and run activities for fellow high schoolers. In doing so, students will develop and put into practice leadership skills, strengthening their Jewish identities and values while making lifelong friends.
In order to serve on the SYG board in 2013-2014,
students must have participated in at least one of
the following activities during the last year:
• High School Confirmation
• Teen Volunteer Weekend
• Multiple Youth Group activities
