TYGER Board Members 2011/2012  




THE ALL NEW CEE YOUTH GROUP for Jewish teens from 7th to 12th grade

TYGER (Temple Youth Group of EmanuEl Redlands) is designed for and by our teens. As you can see, we not only have a new name, but also a new energy! Our Youth Advisor, Jessica Campbell, is dedicated to empowering our youth to initiate and promote their Jewish identity through social, recreational, social action, cultural and Jewish programs. Our goal this year is focused on building.  We will be building our membership, our activities, our fundraising, and our community involvement. Most of all, we will be building a fun program for teens of all ages. Remember, all our programs are initiated and ran by the kids themselves. This allows them to have ownership.  After all, it is their organization.

TYGER is an affiliate of NFTY Southern California, an affiliate of theNorth American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY), which link temple youth groups of Reform synagogues regionally and nationally into a network, providing opportunities for our youths to meet youths of other synagogues.

Jewish Camps  

Children of our Synagogue are encouraged to attend summer Jewish camping programs. Our region of the Reform Movement operates a summer camp, Camp Newman in Santa Rosa. Although, as members of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), our children have preference in registration for camp, spaces may be limited and early registration is advised. Both the Temple and Sisterhood provide some campership support. Other, non-URJ Jewish camping options exist in Southern California, as well, about which information is available at the Temple Office.

Inland and Desert Hillel

Youth Groups Are Worth the Fight
Yes, your child has been playing on the same soccer team since the second grade. Yes, school, homework and grades are important. Yes, sports, drama and clubs look good on college applications. So where does youth group or camp fit into this equation?
