N’tivot (Pathways): Our Teen Program

Our TRS Religious School leads the way in teen Jewish education by fostering an environment where each student connects to the community, immerses in Jewish values, and explores ways in which Jewish learning can add direction to his/her life. Our program offers teens a personalized and flexible approach to finding their own pathway to Jewish learning and living.

For more information about our N’tivot program, please call the Religious School Office.
