The Justice League is an inter-disciplinary community designed to incorporate religious education, social justice experiences, and youth group style fun to prepare our 5th-7th graders for b’nei mitzvah and beyond. The Justice League is designed for all TI 5th-7th graders who will become b’nei mitzvah at Temple Israel, whether they are students in our religious school or a local day school.

Shul-Ins & Sunday Fundays
At shul-ins, Justice League members bond with their peers while spending the night at the temple before a day of hard work impacting the world. Justice League members will sleep on the bima, eat delicious food, worship in fun ways, and play games. On Sunday morning, Justice League members will go out into the greater Boston area to make change in the world and have fun. The day will end with a youth group style activity.
Justice League members will spend a weekend away at camp with the clergy and Justice League staff. Students will experience Shabbat in a new way: sleeping in bunks, special camp style worship, outdoor challenges, plus havdalah and s’mores around the campfire, and of course lots of FUN.
Social Justice in Action
The Social Justice in Action project provides families with the opportunity to build community while taking action on issues that are important to them with the help and support of the Social Justice Organizer and Educator. Families have the opportunity to engage in a yearlong project (of their choosing) through direct service and grassroots organizing.
