Teen Engagement

At Temple Or Rishon, we have many ways for our teens to be involved post b'nai mitzvah. 

TASTY- Social

Open to students in grades 8-12, TASTY kids get together for social events, learning opportunities and mitzvah projects. It's a great way to continue the connection to our Jewish community and to see the friends you made during religious school!

This year's events include: 
  • TASTY in the Sukkah - Saturday, September 30
  • TASTY does Mitzvah Day - Sunday, October 29
  • TASTY Hanukkah - place and time TBD
  • TASTY Shabbat and International Dinner - Friday, February 2
  • End of Year Pool Party - Sunday, May 19
TASTY Social will also have several pop-up events (mini-golf, movie night, bowling, etc)
 

TASTY - ED

Continue your learning with Rabbi Rabishaw, Mary Frank and our Youth director, Jacob Fefer.  Classes meet in cohorts on a Tuesday and cover topics unique to the Jewish teen experience. Teen OR also provides an opportunity for our youth to discuss topics that may be troubling them in their lives. 

TASTY Ed will have 2 cohorts of teens

  • Cohort A: Students who are in 8th and 9th grade in the 23-24 school year will meet on the following Tuesdays -  10/10 & 11/14; 1/9 & 2/13; 4/9 & 5/7   
  • Cohort B: Students who are in 10th, 11th and 12th grade in the 23-24 school year will meet on the following Tuesdays -  10/24 & 11/28; 1/23 & 2/27; 4/16 & 5/14
  • TASTY Ed programming will take place in the homes of the teens. They will start at 6:30pm with dinner and then have a discussion/learning activity from 7pm to 8pm. Discussion will be led by temple staff.

Madrichim Program

We love to have our post-b'nai mitzvah students return on Sundays to help with our Religious school program. Students work as Hebrew tutors, logistics helpers and classroom aides. Community service hours are available. 

NFTY and Camp Newman

We want our kids to spend time with other Jewish teens. All of our TASTY youth group members are also members of NFTY - the National Federation of Temple Youth. Throughout the school year, teens have multiple opportunities to attend Jewish camp for the weekend. In addition, there are other cross-TYG (temple youth group) opportunities where our teens spend time socially with their peers from across the Sacramento region.
