Chasamba

Chasamba strives to cultivate a supportive and fun social community that bridges Jewish values with this age group’s increasing social exploration. Named after a popular Israeli children series (an acronym translated to “The Absolutely Absolute Secret Group"), Chasamba  provides middle school-age youth an opportunity for a fun, semi-structured social space that meets students at one of their greatest period of change and growth--the pre-teen and early teen years.

Chasamba events run monthly and act as a bridge between Garinim’s structured social programming, and youth-driven, holistic programs for high school students. Events are carefully planned by Youth Programs staff who work with Chasamba-aged youth leaders to build the capacity of leadership and to provide age-appropriate and fun activities. Typical events integrate social time, Jewish experiences, and social action initiatives. Most importantly, Chasamba builds a strong community among participants as a launch-pad for lifelong relationships.

Chasamba's events involve both field trips and events in the synagogue. Participants are encouraged to participate in our leadership board to help plan fun events.
