Children in grades 4 - 5 are part of KADIMA. In Kadima, we like to mix it up with food, friends and fun. Most Kadima programs occur on Sunday afternoons from 12:30- 2:00 PM and include a light lunch. This past year we visited the Corn Maze at Hanson's Farm, discovered 100 things to do with Dreidles and played mini-golf with Mr. Litchman. For more information, contact Kayla.

Our Youth Group for kids in grades 2 & 3 is Kochavim, or "Stars." We offer monthly activities throughout the year generally on Sunday afternoons from 12:30:00 to 2:00. Kochavim is the perfect introduction to the fun that awaits in the future years. For more information, please be in touch with Kayla. For photos of some of our Kadima and Kochavim kids, click here.
