Events and On-going Programs for Teens : Young Judaea G'lil Yam


Young Judaea Regions



Young Judaea has something for everyone with our year-round regional programs. Sixteen regions facilitate club meetings, conventions, peer leadership opportunities, social action programs and inter-city events for members across the country, throughout the school year. 




Young Judaea is divided into age and program-level groupings: 






(“Deer” in Hebrew)

3rd - 6th graders


(“Scouts” in Hebrew)

7th - 8th graders


(“Elders” in Hebrew)

9th -12th graders






Our year-round programs provide Jewish youth of all denominations with a positive Jewish experience and foster a close identity with Israel through stories, games, field trips, Shabbat experiences, social events, and exposure to Jewish and Israeli culture. 






Involvement in Young Judaea’s programs has been shown to dramatically increase members' commitment to a Jewish life; and besides that…it's fun
