TLC is all the ways Bet Torah engages our 8th-12th graders.

We invite teens in 8th-12th grade to explore their rich Jewish heritage and challenging modern lives through a variety of learning and community-building programs. 

Year-long TLC Programs


Drash with the Rabbi: Discuss the intersection of teens' lives with Judaism led Rabbi Brusso in his home. For 11th and 12th graders, only. 

Nosh and Drash: Safe space for open, judgement-free dialogue to discuss current events and the world around us.


Leadership Training Cohort: Teen leadership training including workshops and hands-on program leadership.

Madrichim: Role models working with teachers to create a positive environment throughout Kulanu Learning Program. Special tracks include Madrichim-in-Training and ELI 2.0


Better Together: Intergenerational friendship between teens and older adults in our congregation.

Rosh Hodesh and Shevet powered by Moving Traditions: Empowering single gender groups led by adult mentors.   

USY:  Our chapter is in the Emek Division and METNY Region (Branch 4). 

One-Time Programs

Midnight Run: The night before Veterans Day, we travel by bus at night into the city to deliver much-needed food and clothing to those who are less fortunate. The homeless look forward to our support every year. Our Run offers teens the opportunity to have real interaction with the homeless. 

Youth Shabbat: On Youth Shabbat, tweens and teens take over the bimah and lead services for all of Shabbat!
