Middle (Grades 6-8)

Our mission is to develop a sense of responsibility to our community, our country, Israel and worldwide Jewry. We provide opportunities to engage in social action projects while fostering friendships among the diverse populations.

Chai Program: Offered on Wednesdays presenting a variety of courses, i.e., current issues, art workshops, Hebrew ulpan, cooking, film, and Jewish texts. The core curriculum is to develop one’s Jewish identity through media, discussions, and community building. 

Kadima: This is our youth group for 6th, 7th & 8th Graders, which is part of the United Synagogue Youth (USY) national organization. This informal youth group provides social programs to foster friendships among this age bracket. Regional Kadima events bring youngsters together from surrounding synagogues to provide further social networking. Leadership training is the focus for eighth-grade participants. If you have any questions regarding this program please contact Jacey Gluska.   

Mitzvah Madness for 7th & 8th Graders:  A variety of Mitzvah Projects are arranged to give the teens an experience of volunteering in the different ages and economic situations in our community. For example visits to the nursing home, reading to preschoolers, and volunteering at the Community Food Bank. If you have any questions regarding this program please contact Susan Werk.

Weekly Shabbat Morning Services: Weekly on Shabbat and holidays, at 11:00 am, Junior Congregation and monthly the Kadima Brunch will engage our middle-school students in a social, interactive Jewish experience. Through discussion of our weekly Torah portion, games and prayers, we provide spiritual growth for this age group. 

Werb Torah Club Honor Society:  A teen option for those who seek to use their Torah reading skills and their special talents, knowledge and confidence to become future college campus Jewish leaders. Club friends read Torah on Shabbat/holidays and may offer assistance in training learners at CAI and beyond.  

If you have any questions regarding these programs please contact our Education Department.
