Bonim

Bonim is the “gateway” to the start of all the Youth Department Programs. Designed for grades K through 2, the events always provide fun for everyone. All events are supervised by our Youth Director but the parents of the participants are always encouraged to join in on the fun and meet other parents! Typical events include field trips, Havdalah programs, and other social events designed to make the kids feel comfortable with their Har Shalom peers.

Machar  Grades 3-5

The fun and friends continue in Machar for 3rd-5th graders. Machar programs are social, exciting, and full of friendship. It is the best way to help build your child's connection to Har Shalom and his/her peers. From trips to the bowling alley, to movies and Havdalah at Har Shalom, Machar is the place to be!

Kadima  Grades 6-8

Our Kadimaniks participate in local and regional events. Regional events include Kadima Kallah and Kings Dominion Day, while local events could be a Tikkun Olam opportunity, or Havdalah, Bonfire & S'mores. Har Shalom is one chapter in the Seaboard region (MD, VA, NC, and WV). The participants make new friends while engaging in activities that incorporate a Jewish meaning. A hallmark Kadima activity is our Kadima Baseball team. The Kadima group is a great transition to our High School youth group, USY. 

USY Grades 9-12

USY (United Synagogue Youth) is our high school youth group. USYers participate in activities such as Israeli cooking, bowling, and playing with puppies at Har Shalom. They also are part of the Seaboard Region (MD, VA, NC, and WV) which holds shabbatonim and conventions, Kings Dominion Day, and dances. The members make new friends while participating in activities that incorporate a Jewish meaning. 


Travel coast to coast with other Jewish teens on this six and half week adventure. Along the way, you’ll meet the famous mouse at Disneyland, watch the sunrise over the Grand Canyon, and discover a rainbow of natural phenomena, from the California Redwoods to Yellowstone National Park to the vivid pink and orange hues of the Painted Desert.
