Romemu Teen Leadership Circle (Romemu TLC)

Romemu invites teenage children of members to come together for a unique and exciting new program. The Romemu Teen Leadership Circle (Romemu TLC) combines weekly Jewish study, social action/ volunteering opportunities, leadership training, and cultural excursions. Teens will come together with their peers to strengthen friendships, engage in Jewish learning, and set positive change in motion within our community and beyond.

Your teen will explore what it means to share their uniqueness in a community of supportive and encouraging peers and teachers.
