Youth Groups

NOAR 1NOAR and B'NAI NOAR

Or Atid offers two exciting and fun youth groups - NOAR for grades 7 through 12 and B'NAI NOAR for grades 5 and 6 - for all Jewish teens (members and non-members) to connect and make new friends. Our fun-filled social activities and community service events are run under the direction of our Youth Advisor Eli Katzoff. There is no cost to join either of these groups.
