Noar B'Yachad "YOUTH tOGETHER" (Grades 7-8)

The Talmud Torah Noar B’Yachad program seeks to inspire our teens to lead their lives as identified, committed Jews, with a thirst for lifelong Jewish learning.

Our Mission

We aim to provide our teens with a rich educational environment that:

  • Excites them about the value of lifelong Jewish learning;
  • Encourages them to approach contemporary issues from the perspective of a Jewish ethical and moral framework;
  • Fosters identification with and appreciation of the State of Israel and its importance to the Jewish people;
  • Creates an enjoyable social environment;
  • Empowers them to take responsibility for their Jewish lives; and
  • Encourages them to find meaningful ways to become active in the Jewish community.
  • Emphasizes Hadrachah, Teen Leadership. This includes Madrichim training for those teens who wish to be a part of our Talmud Torah classroom assistant program.

The Core Program

The core classes, which consist of units on tikkun olam, contemporary issues, Jewish text study, world Jewry, American Judaism, comparative religion, Israel, Holocaust Studies, and Jewish values  are the backbone of our Noar B’Yachad program. Each evening begins with time for teens to socialize during dinner. Dinner menus are chosen by our teens. 


The elective courses offered in the second hour enable students to choose a class based on areas of interest to them. This adds a level of social interaction encouraging teens to advance their Jewish engagement in a specialized affinity group under the guidance of a uniquely qualified educator. Electives range in topic and have included classes with titles such as Jews in Hollywood, No Cheeseburgers in Paradise (a look at Jewish influence on rock and roll), Jews News and Politics, Israel Beit Café, and more.

Special Teen Programs

In addition to our regular program of core classes and electives, we provide a broad range of special programming for teens and their parents dealing with issues that impact their lives now or will in the near future.

Examples of past programs include special programs focused on preventing relationship violence, navigating being Jewish on college campuses, learning about lone soldiers in Israel, and learning about disability rights and the Jewish community.

Each year, we have an annual Holocaust Speaker Program or visit to the United States Holocaust Memorial Musuem for all of our teens and their parents. 

Please contact Talmud Torah Principal Dafna Spear with any questions.
