SULAM TEEN TRAVEL PROGRAMS

In Partnership with Temple Sinai

We are excited to partner with Temple Sinai to provide teens with immersive Jewish travel experiences, that will help solidify their connection to Judaism, as well as accomplish the mitzvah of tikkun olam, repairing the world.

Sulam Travel Programs engage students in social justice through meaningful interaction, hands-on social action projects, and political advocacy opportunities. Participants return home with deeper connections to the broader Jewish community, friendships, and a stronger sense of personal agency.

Sulam Travel Programs are rooted in the idea that Jewish life should be lived actively. We offer short-term travel opportunities that enable teens to see the world, gain valuable Jewish education, earn community service hours, and make a difference in the communities they visit. Trips are organized and led by Temple Sinai’s director of youth engagement and members of the clergy team.

Registration is open and is done through Temple Sinai’s website. For more information on Temple Sinai Sulam Travel Programs and to register, click here.
