Yala & Confirmation

The Congregation of Reform Judaism’s youth programming provides our youth with opportunities to engage in Jewish life at CRJ and in the broader Jewish community. From experiential learning programs, social events, social action experiences, to volunteer opportunities and trips, our wide variety of experiences come from the foundation that we each learn Torah in our own meaningful way.

When our teens participate in YALA, they learn about and connect to Jewish life by actively experiencing it! YALA, Hebrew for “let’s go!” combines experiential education and social experiences in a cohesive program that fosters Jewish identity development, community-building, leadership skills, and deep connection to Jewish life.

Teens will grow socially, spiritually and Judaically through a variety of diverse experiences including chugim (electives), off-site learning experiences, and guest speakers.

4 Experiential Themes for the 2022-2023 year: 

  • Exploring Jewish Identity 
  • Jewish Culture & Relationships
  • How to be an Advocate / Combatting Anti-Semitism
  • Exploring Israel

For 7th graders, the first year in YALA acts as a bridge from JEEP to further teen engagement and learning. 7th graders will meet fellow CRJ teens, while also having fun and learning in a new and hands-on way during their B'nai Mitzvah year. 

12th graders - Mazel Tov, and thank you for your continued commitment to Jewish growth and learning! You will experience Confirmation class with Rabbi Engel to mark this milestone in your life.

YALA takes place on Monday evenings from 5:30-8pm; dinner is provided from 5:30-6pm.
