Shalom Teens 

The Shalom Teens youth group was established in the year 2000 by  a UJA-Federation Developer grant  in order to strengthen Jewish identity and awareness in teens in the pre and post  b’nai mitzvah years.  We welcome teens and tweens of any Jewish denominational background or non-affiliation.  The group’s  mission statement   says it best, “Shalom Teens is a youth organization  to give teenagers the opportunity to participate in activities of Jewish interest geared toward their age group, meet new people with common interests, do community service and help build  friendships for life,” 

We do this through the camaraderie of shared experiences such as visits to Jewish heritage and cultural sites and hands-on activities of tikkun olam.   We have prepared and served meals at Ronald MacDonald House for families whose children are in treatment for serious illness.  We volunteer at synagogue holiday events to assist younger children at   Purim Carnivals. We staff Chanukah pancake breakfasts and   participate in beach clean-ups in our local environment.   By enjoying recreational and service activities we help our community while building new friendships.

Administered by North  Fork Reform Synagogue  in cooperation with Temple Israel of Riverhead and Congregation Tifereth Israel of Greenport,  Shalom Teens    members cordially invite interested teens and tweens to join in the fun..  Contact  NFRS Youth Liaison  Barbara Sheryll  at  631-921-5554  or bsheryll@optonline.net or Group Leader  Hillary Beiling at 631-848-4249 or hillarybieling@gmail.com.  

We can’t spell YOUTH WITHOUT YOU!
