Informal Jewish Education
It's called Informal Jewish Education, but the kids know it has nothing to do with school. Under the guidance of adult advisors, even the most secular activities (bowling, mini-golf, etc.) can reinforce Jewish values and practice. CBE's youth groups participate in (and lead!) a balance of activities, including spiritual, cultural and community service activities along with the social events.
Under the leadership of Youth Director Sara Pollack, the goal of the CBE Youth Department is to provide Jewish experiences that are so fun and rewarding that the kids will choose to include them in their already-packed schedules.
The Megan Miriam Berman Youth Fund has been established to help our youthful members participate in Youth activities such as travel to regional, national and international meetings. Members who are active in the synagogue and in Jewish studies may be eligible. Additional subsidies are available in cases of financial need; check the Youth Subsidy Policy for details and then complete the Subsidy Application to request assistance.
Sisterhood offers grants to assist with Jewish camping experience or trip costs for children of Sisterhood members ("Camp Cash"). The annual application date is July 31. Information about this program and application forms are available on the Camp Cash page.
Completed forms should be sent or delivered to Melissa Heifetz, CBE Executive Director. And please remember to think of the Megan Miriam Berman Youth Fund as you consider donations to the Beth Emeth community.
