Temple Beth Sholom is now in the process in re-imagination teen programming. Our aim is to reach our entire teen community in a holistic manner and offer powerful and meaningful Jewish experiences to everyone.   


As our young people go off to college, we aim to have nurtured their identity and their sense of leadership for the future.

We need everyone's help.This program will depend heavily on the willingness of teens, parents and others to become engaged and involved.   

Rabbi Leiken

David Taubenfeld Post B'nei Mitzvah Program

Our entire teen program is being named after an incredibly inspiring individual who lived his life with inspiration and taught all who knew him the importance of giving back. David Taubenfeld was a son, a brother, a husband and a father who was close friends with both the Sobels and the Kurkelas. During the years ahead, we look forward to the many opportunities we will have to meet with his wife Felicia and her family and to infuse our own lives with David’s memory. 

This program creates "choice," for teens to participate in events and activities that interest them and are passionate about. To register for the David T. program, please click the link below. 

Join our closed facebook group to see pictures from our events and activities. You will also find information regarding upcoming events and flyers.
