Youth Programs

For more information please contact Brian Grossbard, Assistant Director of Upper School and Youth,

Congregation Olam Tikvah offers programs to youths and teens grades 3-12. We are part of the USY Seaboard Region. Throughout the year we offer programs for Machar (grades 3-5), Kadima (grades 6-8), and USY (grades 9-12). We would love to have the kids get notifications, so please send their email address. And if they have Instagram, tell them to follow us at OTUSY1
