Youth Groups

Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El is a great place to be a kid! The Youth Department creates and runs exciting, fun and meaningful programming for all of the youth of our congregation.

We welcome parent participation as chaperons, as well as to provide feedback and ideas. Our goal is for every child at TBH–BE to feel a part of our synagogue community.

Young Explorers (families with young children)

The Young Explorers group provides social and educational opportunities for families with young children to meet and develop connections and friendships. Past activities have included: apple picking at Linvilla Orchards, volunteering at the Jewish Relief Agency (JRA), and pottery painting. Families also participate in the Sisterhood Havdallah program. 

Cub Scouts | 1st - 5th Graders

Bonim | 1st - 4th Graders 
Bonim "builders" offers exciting monthly programming for elementary school-aged children that allows them to gain independence by attending events without their parents. Events are well supervised with the help of a few parents to ensure the safety of all children. Past activities have included a magic show, minute-to-win-it games, and an under-night; most events are held on Sunday afternoons.

Kadima | 5th - 7th Graders
The theme of Kadima "moving forward" is building friendships. TBH–BE’s Kadima chapter is being run collaboratively with Adath Israel to encourage children to make and continue friendships with other kids in the area. Past events have included BounceU, rock climbing, making candy sushi, and Top Chef: Cake Edition. In addition to these Main Line events, Kadima members are encouraged to attend regional events with other Kadimaniks throughout the greater Philadelphia area, such as the annual day trip to Hershey Park.

USY | 8th - 12th Graders
Our USY (United Synagogue Youth) chapter runs programs both on a chapter level as well as jointly with other synagogues within the Hagesher region. Programs, which are created by the teens on the USY board, have included sushi in the Sukkah, hayride at Linvilla Orchards, Friday night dinners, ice skating at Penn’s Landing, ComedySportz, lounge nights, Casino Night and our annual phone-a-thon fundraiser for tikkun olam (charity). We also encourage participation in regional events and conventions, the annual International Convention held over winter break, and USY summer programs.
