Youth Activities

Informal Jewish Education

It's called Informal Jewish Education, but the kids know it has nothing to do with school.  Under the guidance of adult advisors, even the most secular activities (bowling, mini-golf, etc.) can reinforce Jewish values and practice.  CBE's youth groups participate in (and lead!) a balance of activities, including spiritual, cultural and community service activities along with the social events.

Under the leadership of Youth Director Zach Moskowitz, the goal of the CBE Youth Department is to provide Jewish experiences that are so fun and rewarding that the kids will choose to include them in their already-packed schedules.

USY (Grades 9-12)

CBE USY, (or CuBsEy) is Beth Emeth's Youth group for teens in 9th-12th grades. Affiliated with United Synagogue Youth, it provides opportunities for socializing, leadership, and religious observance. In addition to events with our own USY chapter, we participate in regional events through Seaboard USY, where we have been a Chapter of Excellence for several years, including the 2016-2017 Chapter of the Year.

Collegians of Beth Emeth

Collegians of Beth Emeth (formerly KOACH) is our outreach program for Beth Emeth’s college students. We like to make sure that our college students have a taste of home while they’re away at school, through twice-yearly care packages.  Please make sure your college student’s address is updated by sending their name, school and mailing address to Youth Director Zach Moskowitz.

The Megan Miriam Berman Youth Fund has been established to help our youthful members participate in Youth activities such as travel to regional, national and international meetings.
