  • Teen Minyan, 9:47 am, Middle School Beit Midrash

    Teen Minyan is a student-led minyan for Bar and Bat Mitzvah-age through high school. We come together to daven and enjoy classic Teen Minyan staples such as donuts, kiddush, Jeopardy, Family Feud, and trivia with our own spin.  We have great discussions on moral dilemmas, divrei Torah, parshah trivia, raffles, prizes, and more.

    Teen Minyan is a partnership program between teens and the BT Congregation, where we strive to create an environment where everyone can feel comfortable and can take on leadership roles. Thank you to our teen leaders!
