SALTY Youth Group (7th - 12th Grade)


SALTY, or Shir Hadash Adolescents Leading Teens and Youth, is a group that empowers the current and future Jewish youth at Shir Hadash and provides them with leadership opportunities. Throughout the year events are thrown about once a month that range from ice skating, to escape rooms, to social action projects. The group is open for 7th to 12th graders and all information for signing up for events can be found linked from the Shir Hadash calendar


We're thrilled to congratulate the young leaders who have stepped forward and been elected to serve as SALTY Board Members for 2020-21.


All students in grades 7-12 are invited to participate in our youth group!   

Youth group members have the opportunity to build friendships, develop lifelong Jewish identities, and grow leadership skills through community building, worship, social action and experiential youth-led programming. Our youth group provide a place to make friends, have FUN, learn and engage in many opportunities for leadership and experiences in youth.

Activities include events such as:

  • Youth Group Sleepover,
  • Pancake Breakfast, 
  • Purim Carnival Volunteering Leadership,
  • and much more!

It's community. It's leadership. It's friendship. It's belonging. Youth also have the opportunity to serve in leadership roles on the youth board, which guides the program for each year's activities. We have shul-ins, movie nights, host carnivals, do social action, have parties, and more. We are a bunch of teens who like hanging out together in a place to be understood, be supported, and feel connected.
