Tamid takes place on Tuesday nights from 6:15-8:00 pm. There is an optional dinner each week from 5:45-6:15 pm, with catering from a variety of restaurants and cuisines!
We consistently rotate between a few different themes and types of programming: Jewish studies, current events, social/fun programming, and tikkun olam (social justice) – with a few other fun one-offs sprinkled in. 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 students enrolled in Tamid, Talmud Torah Tuesdays (TTT) 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 TTT 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.
Tamid is structured this way to provide a little bit of everything to all of our students, all in an environment that allows kids across grades and interests to learn a lot, be involved in their communities, and have fun!
