"The middle school audi- ence is a unique age group that has specific needs and wants to make Jewish values meaningful to them," said Lory Conte, staff coordinator of Club Tayarim programs. "These monthly events allow us to focus on connecting youth to the Orlando Jewish community in an environ- ment created just for them." Club Tayarim bridges the gap between middle school and high school and intro- duces young teens to peer-led programming, exciting social events, connections to their Jewish heritage, and charac- ter developing experiences in an inclusive environment that prepares teens for suc- cess in high school, college and beyond. The next event will be Suk- kahFest on Sunday, Sept. 22 at the JCC.
