One of Sisterhood's priorities is our Temple youth. We support and encourage our kids in a lot of different ways.
We provide apples & honey at Rosh Hashona and Dreidles & Gelt at Chanukah to the Religious School and ECEC kids. We provide gifts for the Bar and Bat Mitzvah students. We provide Bibles for the confirmation students. We provide gifts for the 12th grade class. We provide funding to both the Religious School and ECEC for "little extras" that their budget might not cover.
Our campership program helps our kids attend camp, and because the kids put in time volunteering to earn their scholarship, the kids feel that they have contributed to funding their camp experience. We also provide money for scholarships for Avodah, the L'Taken trip, and TASTY convention. And we provide funding for Alumni Outreach.
We are not alone in our support of our youth. Many of these programs, such as campership, the Bar/Bat Mitzvah gifts and the Confirmation Bibles, are run jointly with MoTAS. MoTAS also provides gifts for the 12th grade class.
In addition, our umbrella organization, the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), provides an *enormous* amount of support for Jewish youth. The "Y" in "YES Fund" (WRJ's philanthropic vehicle) stands for YOUTH. Support of youth is among the YES Fund's proudest achievements. WRJ founded and continues to support NFTY, as well as URJ Camps and Israel programs, where our youth build friendships, establish strong Jewish identities, and develop leadership skills. The YES Fund was among the initial donors of the URJ Campaign for Youth Engagement (CYE) when it launched in 2011 and continues to support programs that engage and inspire Reform Jewish youth.
We are thankful that we have the resources to support our youth, help encourage their sense of Jewish identity, and promote the continuation of Judaism into the next generation.
