Message From Dara, our full-time Youth Director

Thanks for checking out the Temple Teen site.

Whether you are already a Temple Teen or not, I hope the information you find here will be helpful.  As you can see, we are a very active youth group.  If you have not attended a Temple Teen event before, I want to let you know that if you come, you will feel welcomed and at home.  High school is a time of life that is jam packed with studies, extra-curricular activities, part-time jobs, family, friends and more, but we know that high schoolers who make G-d a top priority don’t ever regret it!  My husband, Marc, and I are here to help you do just that. If you are in high school, we want you to know just how much G-d loves you and help you develop a meaningful relationship with Him that will change your life forever in the most amazing ways!

This site has the Temple Teen monthly calendar to help you keep track of all the exciting events taking place.  However, I’m interested in adding expressions of YOU on here.  So, if you have anything that represents what G-d is doing in your life – short stories, art work, poetry, photography or real life accounts to name a few – please send them to

Remember, the Temple Teen youth group is all about YOUR LIFE and living it like never before! Marc and I are so thankful to be a part of your journey! L’chaim (to life)!

Hope to see you soon!
