Youth

Bonim

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

Machar

Machar is our youth group for
Grades 3 – 5.

Since children in this age group have already started Religious School, the goal of most Machar programs is to introduce 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders to more of the less formal activities that Har Shalom offers. From trips to the bowling alley to something as simple as watching movies in the Youth Lounge, Machar is the place to be!

Kadima

Kadima is a youth group for kids in Grades 6-8.

The kids participate in activities such as bowling, overnights, shabbatons and conventions (where they go away for 3 days). Har Shalom is one chapter in the whole Seaboard region (MD, VA, NC and WV). The participants make new friends while participating in activities that incorporate a Jewish meaning. The Kadima group is a great transition into our High School youth group, USY, and a wonderful way to meet other young Jews.

USY

USY is a Jewish Youth group for High School students.
USY stands for United Synagogue Youth, founded in 1951. The kids participate in activities such as bowling, overnights, shabbatons and conventions (where they go away for 3 days). Har Shalom is one chapter in the whole Seaboard region (MD, VA, NC and WV). The participants make new friends while participating in activities that incorporate a Jewish meaning.
