Youth Groups

KoBE—Kids of Beth-El

KoBE allows for a fun, social environment with a Jewish twist, for our 3rd through 7th graders. KoBE allows our younger members the opportunity to stay involved in our Temple and serves as the stepping stone for future participation in our Senior Youth Groups.

YoBE—Youth of Beth-El

YoBE is our teen youth group for 8th through 12th graders. With a foundation in the values of Reform Judaism, YoBE works strenuously to produce programs for Jewish youth in high school.

YoBE activities range from trips to local sites like Millennium Park and The Grove to social action events that help the local needy or provide aid to humanitarian crisis and everything in between, including: religious service, education on current issues and various Judaic topics, lounge nights in our wonderful youth lounge, and fun programs designed by the YoBE board right at Temple Beth-El.

YoBE is an organization defined by the purposes listed in its constitution:

  • To provide a vehicle for Jewish youth an opportunity to unite through the participation in various events of enjoyable, and oftentimes, educational and spiritual nature
  • To take our place in the Jewish community as well as prepare ourselves for future responsibilities as adult members and leaders of society
  • To create meaningful memories that enrich all participants’ Jewish teenage experience, instilling a more complete Jewish identity
  •  To make the moral and social values of Judaism functional attributes of daily life
  • To preserve and advance Jewish ideology philosophy and education within the structure of Reform Judaism.
