Youth Minyan - The Youth Minyan is a collaborative effort with our SHACHRIT Hebrew prograam.

During this block teens will be divided into four groups by grade and identified gender. Learning will happen in a 4-week rotation plan around a central Jewish theme. Learning will be lead by clergy and education staff.
