Youth Groups

Shir Hadash Youth Groups foster friendship amongst the congregation’s children and teenagers by providing a fun and safe setting for our kids to come together to engage in exciting and meaningful programs. Events combine social activities with Jewish content, with a focus on the Jewish value of tikkun olam, repairing the world, and holiday celebrations. Ivy Chesser serves as the Member-at-Large overseeing our Youth program.

Congregation Shir Hadash is the proud home of three youth groups:

  • Club 345 welcomes 3rd–5th graders
  • JSHAGY welcomes 6th–8th graders
  • NFTY Senior Youth Group welcomes all 9th–12th graders

NFTY Senior Youth Group

This is a ground-breaking year for our 9th-12th grade youth program, as we are taking the youth group in a brand-new direction. After many conversations with our teens, we have decided to dedicate our 9th-12th grade youth program to the work of tikkun olam, repairing the world. We affirm that through engaging in the work of social action, our teens will create new bonds with their Jewish peers, as well as perform some good work in our community.

Our NFTY Senior Youth Group holds social events about once a month, usually on Sunday evenings.

  • Interfaith “Stop Hunger Now” Event
  • Jewish-Muslim Social Action Day
  • Interfaith Creek Cleanup
  • Health Fair
