Congregation Beth Israel

Beth Israel teens have a variety of formal and informal Jewish programming in which they can participate. BITY (Beth Israel Temple Youth) is for teens grades 9-12. 8th graders can join in the fun during their second semester. BITY is a part of SoCal NFTY. Tuesday evening High School programming includes core and elective courses, as well as immersive travel opportunities. Beth Israel’s Madrichim program, first in the country over 50 years ago, is still strong with over 60 teens. The “Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing” program will be returning to Beth Israel, along with Shevet Achim. Teens are also a part of the youth/teen choir.


Starting July 1, 2021, the San Diego Jewish Teen Initiative will be transitioning under the new direction of the Jewish Federation of San Diego County. If you have any questions regarding community partners, grants, or offerings, please reach out to Molly Okun, Donor Engagement Manager.
