8th-12th Graders Sunday Teen Scene: Teens meet on Sundays after religious school 12:00- 2:00 pm, approximately six-eight times per semester for social time and lunch with special guests from around our community and workshops designed especially for teens. The emphasis is on meaningful discussion and project-based learning.

8th-12th Graders Temple Solel Temple Youth (TSTY): Temple Solel’s youth group for teens, run by our elected teen board under the guidance of the TSTY advisor. The calendar of social and social action events is created entirely for teens by teens. TSTY is part of the North American Federation of Temple Youth Southwest Region (NFTY SW) and teens can participate in regional and national weekend events with other Jewish teens from synagogues around the country.

Confirmation: (10th-12th Graders who have not previously been confirmed) Confirmation is a rite of passage for Jewish teens as they move closer to adulthood and further develop their Jewish identities. Teens will engage in a discussion workshop during Sunday Teen Scene, attend additional sessions in family homes and participate in a Confirmation ceremony and service in the spring. Teens will have the chance to join other teens from our area and around the country for the L’Taken Social Justice seminar in Washington, D.C., scheduled for January 19-21, 2018.

Madrichim Team for 9th-12th Grade & Madrichim-In-Training Team for 8th Grade: Teens can assist in our religious school classes on Sunday mornings (and Wednesday afternoons) or in the Raker Religious School office, Boker Tov Bistro, Friday night babysitting or as a part of the t’filah team. Support and training is provided by the RRS Director and the madrichim advisor during RRS hours for both experienced madrichim and beginning madrichim.
