Jewish Youth Connection

Jewish Teens Coming Together for Learning and Playing

It can be a little lonely as a Jewish teen in Maine—so the Center for Small Town Jewish Life is excited to offer the Maine Jewish Youth Connection, bringing together YA Jews from across the state for learning, togetherness, and FUN. We are finally transitioning back to in-person programming!  Check back here regularly for opportunities to gather virtually, learn, and have fun.

Craft Your Art Out!

Sunday, January 23, 2-3:30 p.m. at Beth Israel Congregation, Waterville

Join us on Sunday, January 23 at Beth Israel  in Waterville (291 Main Street—but come in through the side door on Kelsey Street!). We’re going to be painting and decorating some fine craft works, and doing some excellent text study together. Please note two Covid-relevant facts: 1) Because we will be doing this event inside, no food will be served and masks will be required for the duration of the event; and 2) We’ll have rapid tests available. Parents, please plan to arrive early and hang out for 10-15 minutes in your cars with your kiddos so they can test on the spot around 1:45 p.m. Remember that those teens who attend three out of four events during the year are eligible for our year-end special event (TBA)!

We are so excited to see you IN PERSON! Questions? Email Mel Weiss: [email protected]
