The Temple's Youth Programs for 4th-12th Graders


Click here to view the Project Connect Handbook online.

Welcome to Project Connect! The Education Team, in partnership with our Project Connect Teen Leadership, has worked to create Project Connect, an umbrella group that connects teens (9th-12th
grade) to their various interests. There are numerous opportunities, some existing and some new, to involve teens in ways that appeal to them. Teens may belong to as many Projects as they wish. Projects are led by teens who are responsible for scheduling and implementing events from beginning to end. The leaders of each project join together to create our Project Connect Teen Board.
This year our teen board is chaired by Ryan Carter, Oliver Gillett, and Olivia Nelson.


We empower our teens to help us plan, recruit, and host social events for their peers. Teens who would like to help plan events are invited to join the Project Connect Planning Committee. We will help with everything needed to have a successful event including registration and supervision.
Chairs: Eden Wassersug & Joie Beth Weiss


Project Justice is for teens wanting to engage in social justice and advocacy. This group participates in multiple advocacy events (tzedek) ranging from gun violence prevention to equal rights and more. In addition, teens engage through hands-on social action projects (mitzvot).
Chairs: Abby Hyken, Jonah Jacobs, Noam Segal, and Daniel Sommerfeld

Project Merry Mitzvah is our teen-led social action project for the Zaban Paradies Center for Homeless Couples. Teens are needed to help fundraise, plan, and implement both the meal and shopping experience for the residents.

Junior Chairs: Anna Banner & Emily Silver
Senior Chairs: Daniel Ratner & Sarah Zedd
