Katan-tan

Katan-Tan is Beth El's youth group for Kindergarten-1st grade who want a fun place to play after Torah School one Sunday a month. Activities have included ice skating, day at the movies, chocolate seder, and many more. Being a member of Katan-Tan gives children the opportunity to connect with new Jewish friends in an informal environment where the Jewish values that are taught during Torah school or at home come to life. Whether your Kindergarten or 1st Grader attends VTS, SDJA, is new to San Diego, or just wants to meet some new kids, Katan-Tan is the place to be!

Being a member of Machar gives children the opportunity to connect with new Jewish friends in an informal environment where the Jewish values that are taught during Torah school or at home come to life.

Kadima

Kadima, meaning "forward" or "let's go" in Hebrew, is a youth group for children in grades 4-6. This group meets once a month during the school year for events such as bowling, San Diego Kadima Day, Laser Tag, Kadima Kinnus at Camp Ramah in Ojai, and more. Kadima is a wonderful way to develop strong Jewish friendships and connections to the Jewish community. Through chapter and regional events, Kadima-nicks become aware of a larger Jewish world while learning how to become a part of it.

usy

United Synagogue Youth is an International Conservative Jewish youth group for 7th-12th grade teens. Our chapter of Beth El USY is divided into Jr. USY (7th and 8th) and Sr. USY (9th-12th), where we have become a close knit group that participates in Lounge nights; Far West Regional Kinnusim; and social weekend programming like dances, a Disneyland trip, camping and a USY Shabbaton. USY provides participants with a strong Jewish identity and an incredible social network of Jewish friends. Participants are not only given unbeatable leadership opportunities, but are also introduced to religious learning, a connection with Israel, and the importance of tikkun olam, each fostering a connection to a greater Jewish community. USY also offers summer trips to Israel as well as various bus trips which introduce Jewish values and tradition.
