Temple De Hirsch Sinai offers a variety of programming created specifically for the youngest members of our community each and every month

Designed to empower our youth to live Reform Judaism, these programs are designed to create challenging, fun, relevant, and meaningful Jewish experiences. Social, social action, and informal educational experiences connect participants to a safe and supportive community while offering Jewish content in new and exciting.

JTDSY, the junior version of TDSY, is designed exclusively for our 7 and 8 graders.
Providing primarily social experiences which expand Jewish connections and community outside of the Religion School and B’nai Mitzvah experiences, JTDSY events are a great way to have fun and meet new people. Many events are Tri-Temple — Temple, Temple Beth Am, and Temple B’nai Torah commonly join forces to create fun and exciting events. Having all three synagogues join forces allows participants to connect with a wide group of school friends, Camp Kalsman friends, and friends yet-to-be!
