There are a lot of exciting things that go on in the youth department.
For all our youth in years 5-8 we have our famous Inters service. This is a great way for children to feel more relaxed in a more formal service, become familiar with the davening and also learn to run the service themselves.
For those in year 8-13 we have a sophisticated but informal youth service. Led and managed by students, this is a great opportunity for the youth to feel at home in the shul.
Each week there's a Kiddush just for the youth with a special Kiddush once a month. Previous special kiddusim have included ice-cream Kiddush, chocolate Kiddush and Met-Su-Yan Kiddush!
Every Sunday our year 5s and 6s come to Shul for Club 56, a chance to have great fun with arts and crafts, Nintendo Wii and lots of cooking!
Run by Rabbi and Aviva Landau and madrichim, each session is dedicated to a different and cool arts and crafts project and we always provide supper.
All that for just £5.00! Please email the community department office for Club 56 dates for each term.
We also have a special outing for Club 56 once a term, ranging from ice-skating to bowling!Plays Every year we run at least one play. This year together with years 5 and 6, we will be running a newly updated version of the fantastic play, 'Haim Potter and the Megillah of Fire'! which will be staged on Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st March
Every other Tuesday is iClub night, for our year 7s and 8s. An informal get-together, iClub gives year 7 and 8 students a chance to come to our marvellous youth lounge for a social gathering with their peers from the shul.
iClub costs just £5.00 per time and supper is provided.
Once a term we also run a special outing. December 2011, we went to Quasar in Enfield! Please be in touch for iClub dates for the current term.
Learn to Lead
This is our fantastic leadership programme for students in year 9 and 10, which gives young teenagers the tools they need to successfully tackle the world around them and grow into responsible leaders in the Jewish community.
Topics covered include drugs awareness, self-defence, peer pressure, public speaking, debating, first aid, Israel advocacy and much more.
The sessions all lead up to the Israel trip which takes place for year 10 in the February half term.
The skills that are learnt in these initial sessions in year 9 and 10 are then developed and put into practice in the following years, where the teenagers help run clubs, plays and trips for the younger children.
Please be in touch with the office for dates and details.
Trips and Shabbatonim
Other than a host of residential Shabbatonim that run throughout the year, the youth have the chance to join us on trips around the world.
Other than the inspirational Israel trip in year 10, we run a year 11 weekend trip to the beautiful city of Prague.
Participants not only learn about this city's amazing history and culture, we visit and discover the rich Jewish history that this city enjoyed.
This is just a taste of everything that goes on in our department - for more information please call our office on 0208 385 7263
