Pathways (8th-12th Grade)
Pathways (8th-12th Grade)

The Basics

Pathways is our comprehensive, choice-based program for high school students. Beginning the Spring of 8th Grade through the end of 12th Grade, teens carve out their own Jewish path by participating in over 20 different programs. Once enrolled in Pathways, teens can participate in programming from these five categories:

  • join TaSTY, our high school youth group
  • serve as a Teaching Assistant (TA) in our Religious School
  • learn with our clergy and faculty in Electives
  • travel across the United States on service learning Trips
  • become an Intern with our Shaaray Tefila staff

While many of our Pathways programs take place on Monday evenings, view the calendar link in the “Calendars & Parent Resources” tab below for specific dates and times for our Pathways programs. Teens can also create their own opportunity, or “path,” in consultation with our staff. Contact us to set up a Pathways consultation.

The Details


The senior youth group of Pathways is TaSTY – Temple Shaaray Tefila Youth. Led by the teen-elected TaSTY Board, TaSTY offers social programs and holiday celebrations open to all Pathways teens. TaSTY meets every Monday night from 7:30-8:30pm in the Youth Lounge, plus for special events throughout the year.
