Don’t walk in front of me, I MAY NOT FOLLOW. Don’t walk behind me, I MAY NOT LEAD. Just walk beside me and BE MY FRIEND. And TOGETHER we will walk in the ways of Hashem.

Midbar Kodesh Temple is host to a vibrant and inclusive Jewish youth group, catering to students from kindergarten through 12th grade. We provide a nurturing environment where young minds explore social programming, develop leadership skills, engage in meaningful social action and tikkun olam, and deepen their understanding of Judaism. Together, we foster a strong sense of community, values, and personal growth, preparing our youth to become compassionate and empowered leaders.
