Youth Trips

BJBE provides its youth with a variety of youth trip options. Each reflects experiential education at its finest, giving teens a unique new perspective on their Judaism and strengthening their identity as Jews.

L’Taken RAC (Religious Action Center) Trip
Friday, January 26 – Monday, January 29, 2018
Every year nearly 2,000 high school-age students participate in the Union for Reform Judaism Religious Action Center's L'Taken Seminar in Washington, D.C. The program is designed to expose students to a variety of public policy issues, explore the Jewish values surrounding these issues and to teach the skills of an effective advocate.

Teen Mission to Kolin and Israel
June 14-25, 2018
Led by BJBE clergy and Ezra Kedar, we’ll tend to the graves of those who once prayed with our Kolin Torah Scrolls in the Czech Republic, visit Terezin Concentration Camp, and stroll the streets of picturesque Prague. We will then journey home to Israel where we’ll savor as much of our beautiful country as possible, from the Knerret in the North, to Masada in the South, and beautiful Jerusalem at the heart.
