Tamid takes place on Tuesday nights from 6:15-8:00 pm with an optional dinner from 5:45-6:15 pm.
Each week focuses on one of four themes: Jewish studies, tikkun olam (social justice), social/fun programming, and current events. This provides students with an opportunity to go more in depth on a variety of topics of interest to them, and have a good amount of time dedicated to each.
For all 8th-12th grade students (excluding Confirmation), Talmud Torah Tuesdays (“Triple T”) are required for attendance. This allows our teen community to have critical mass at least once a month, which creates ruach (spirit), cohesion, relationships, and a venue for communicating upcoming opportunities. While we understand that other obligations compete for the very limited time in a teen’s schedule, we would like for them to show a concerted effort to be engaged with our post-B’nai Mitzvah congregational community by attending as many Tuesdays as possible during the month, but prioritizing that Triple T week. Additionally, we hope that in creating this type of programming there will be an exciting and critical mass of teens present, which is necessary to build a kehilah kedosha, a holy learning community.
