Teen Programs

Jewish learning doesn’t end with Bar or Bat Mitzvah!
The teen years are crucial for staying involved in Jewish life, and
exploring issues of personal identity, values, religious awareness, and community.

Madrichim Program

For 8th-12th graders, TBO offers a madrichim, or teacher’s aide, program, where students learn leadership skills as they assist teachers in the K-7th grade religious school, and become mentors to younger children. The program is run by our Youth Director and aims to foster leadership among our youth and create a cohesive peer support group. For more information on this program, please contact Ron Barhai, at youthgroup@templebethorr.org or by calling (954) 753-3232

8th-12th Grade Kesher and Confirmation Programs

Temple Beth Orr also encourages all 8th-12th graders to participate in TBO’s Kesher program. We appreciate the busy lives of our teens and therefore encourage them to participate in this program only as much as they can, and in whatever capacity fits their lives.TBO has designed its own educational program for these students which allows the students to collaborate with the Rabbi to create the year’s curriculum. This enables us to ensure that the students are learning about and discussing important Jewish topics that are of interest to them. Information and registration materials are available from the office by calling (954) 753-3232. TBO’s 10th Graders will have a one-on-one Confirmation Class with our Rabbi, culminating in their meaningful Confirmation Ceremony and Confirmation class trip.
