The Etz Chaim Youth Department

Our Mission Statement

"Throughout life, we hop from one lilypad to another, from one experience to the next. It is our mission to provide all of our Jewish youth a meaningful Jewish experience, one so special and unique that each of their lilypads become memorable and worthwhile."

 

At our core, we are a youth organization associated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. We work to provide fun, engaging, and innovative programming for Jewish youth, starting in Kindergarten, and progressing all the way up to the 12th grade...but we are much more than this!

We teach our youth to be kindhearted, generous, and compassionate. We guide them in the advocacy of Israel, while showing them that every life matters.

We teach respect, not only for others, but for ourselves as well, in a world where darkness sometimes makes it difficult to see the light in which we live.

We teach dignity, the consciousness of not possessing honor, but the understanding that we deserve it.

We are accepting, tolerant, and go above and beyond to open our arms to the world around us, in a time where, too often, others close their doors.

We are proud. We stand strong.

We are the Etz Chaim Youth Department.
