Youth Committee

Our goal is to engage children in grades 4–12 through programming and activities. This helps create bonds of friendship and foster a greater sense of Jewish community. Creative ideas and extra hands are always needed!


To volunteer or for more information, please email Jeremy at


Congregation Or Shalom strongly believes in the importance of informal social and learning opportunities for its students in addition to our structured class time. Three active youth groups enhance our students’ connection to one another and to our Jewish community.


Encourage your child to participate in youth group! For more information, please contact youth advisors Kevin and Allisa Horwitz at
