TEen Israel Trip

The highlight of our youth programs! Offered to 9/10th grade members of TE, the trip usually occurs over December vacation for 10 days and is led by experienced TE youth staff and clergy. We travel by bus from Haifa to the Negev desert with stops in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Tzfat, Haifa, Galilee, Caesarea, Sde Boker, the Ramon Crater and so much more. The trip offers our teens the chance to travel and bond with each other and the staff while learning about our heritage and present-day Israel in a very teen-friendly way.

Solomon Youth Lounge

Hang out before Religious School, attend a lounge night or movie event. The lounge has a big screen TV, table tennis, Ms. Pac-Man, basketball shoot, foosball, Nok Hockey, snack machines and comfortable couches/bean bags for all to relax.

Scholarship Application

Jewish camp and Israel trip funding available

At Temple Emanuel we are fortunate to be able to provide assistance for those families that may benefit from additional funding for Jewish summer camp, Israel or USY trips.  We do not want finances to be an obstacle for children to have amazing experiences in a Jewish context.   Email or  call Wayne Goldstein at 617-558-8121 or email Howard Greene.
