Please note: Connections is continuing this year with only returning families. This information is provided for reference while a new family learning program is being developed. Stay tuned for new options in 2017!
Connections is a Beth Am youth education program for families who want to make friends, have fun, and learn about Judaism. The program helps participants develop confidence in their ability to live a meaningful Jewish family life and pass this heritage on to the next generation. Families are placed in groups of 6-10 families, based primarily on children's ages, with a dedicated mentor. The mentor works with families to create a schedule of 25-30 events for the school year, then leads events and activities throughout the year. Events can be combined with other groups or with the whole Beth Am community.
