Welcome to YALA Beth El, our high school education program.

YALA ("Youth Are Learning At..") Beth El will be offering ongoing classes, special events, trips and other programs to engage our high school-age youth. This will provide them with opportunities for serious engagement with Jewish learning and values, contemporary issues, their community and themselves.


Congregation Beth El's 8th-12th graders work in our Youth & Family Education programs as madrichim or 'guides' in Hebrew. Our madrichim work as teaching assistants, Hebrew tutors, specialty leaders and office assistants helping our programs run smoothly while they gain valuable work experience and leadership practice. The madrichim will additionally receive a quarterly stipend for their work. Please note: 8th graders who plan on participating must be enrolled in Makom.
