A program of the JCC in partnership with BBYO, Tayarim Connect brings teens in grades 6-8 together for social, Judaic and community service programs. These programs offer teens a variety of experiences to help bridge the gap between pre- and post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah and high school. The purpose is to provide middle school students with a positive experience in which they can get together with camp, school, and synagogue friends, as well as meet new friends! For more information, contact Lory Conte.
