The three Reform congregations have joined together to provide a weekly youth group.
Every Tuesday, Kulanu meets for dinner at 6:00 p.m. then breaks up into sections of small groups. The three congregations (Sinai, Beth Israel Ner Tamid and Emanu-El) take turns hosting the teens from 6pm to 8pm.
In an attempt to offer deeper learning that students don’t get anywhere else, teens will experience and build their Jewish faith through the arts, social action and leadership.
