ATID- Where being Jewish is fun!

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

What: ATID is an exciting 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.

Children enroll for the entire series to gain the full benefits of the program. Children enjoy a variety of activities and experiences that foster friendships and a sense of community. By spanning several months, the program provides ample time for children to build meaningful relationships, explore their heritage, and have fun in a supportive environment.

During 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.
