CHAIY Youth Group

Shaarei-Beth El youth programs bring the excitement of immersive Jewish experiences to kids and teens to strengthen their Jewish identity and instill Reform Jewish values for the next generations. We strengthen Jewish connections and knowledge for the entire family through meaningful and relevant programs and engagement. Our goal is to create an exciting and positive atmosphere for young adults to find their place in the Jewish community.

CHAIY –  Congregational Hebrew Association of Inspired Youth – meets weekly as part of the religious school on Wednesday nights for learning and social time.  We also have events such as the limousine scavenger hunt, overnight shul-in, escape room, social action projects like food drives and serving at the soup kitchen and weekend trips to New York, Halifax, and Chicago.
