ATID- Where being Jewish is fun!

(ATID is pronounced as "AH-TEED" and it means “future” in English.)

What: ATID is an exciting new pilot program designed exclusively for Jewish school-age children enrolled in kindergarten to 5th grade, offering a journey of Jewish connection, creativity, fun and community building during the school year in a camp-like setting.

During a monthly, three hour gathering on Saturday afternoon moving from Shabbat into Havdalah, children under the guidance of experienced youth group leaders will explore Jewish values and their meaning, make new friends and participate in engaging Jewish-focused activities of music, conversation, food, play and art.
