2/3 WAFTY (Gezah) & WAFTY Lite (Anaf)

Classroom experiences are critical to experiencing community, enhancing learning, and deepening Jewish identity. But classroom experiences are not enough. At Congregation B’nai Shalom there are opportunities at every age for kids to grow, to develop friendships, and to feel connected. With active participation comes a real sense of belonging.


WAFTY “LITE” (Anaf Grades 4 & 5) 

Periodic Sunday afternoons or Saturday evenings provide the time for this initial youth group experience. We begin with the premise that the Temple is a place for young people to learn social skills in a context of Jewish values. WAFTY Lite offers social and community service programs in a fun and creative context. WAFTY Lite holds 4-5 events per year which are intended to foster Jewish identity and to promote Jewish friendships outside of religious school by creating social opportunities. The WAFTY Lite programs are led by Family Educator Cheryl Pouliot, assisted by high school students.
