Our Programs

Kesher (Connection) • • •

Kesher is the religious education initiative for children grades Pre-K – 6th grade. Students in K-5 will use the La-Bri’ut curriculum, which was created specifically in response to today’s new normal and stressors. La’bri’ut, translated to “to our health and wellness,” is based in Jewish values, traditions, and stories, and is expertly woven together with principles of caregiving, with the goal of building a toolkit that will help kids through the pandemic.

Learning by K’Futzah (Group)

GAAn B’Ahava (3 Years – Pre-K)

Gan (garden) is a place where our littlest sprouts grow their roots and begin their Jewish learning experience. In this k’futzah, through creative learning methods and the natural inquisitiveness and exploration of children, we develop a sense of Ahavat Yisrael (love for a fellow Jew). Ahavat Yisrael encompasses a love for the people and traditions of Israel. Children registered in GAAn B'Ahava are invited to join Kesher weekly for havdallah and will have 30 minute program once per month.

Kesher (K – 2nd Grade)
In this class, we focus on developing the foundation each Jewish person needs to live a fruitful Jewish life. Students in K - 2nd grade will receive a “subscription-style” box of materials to support their learning. They will be guided through short projects that will utilize the materials in their box.

Kesher (3rd – 5th Grade)
In this class, we teach students to have ownership and pride in being a Jewish person and how to create a more holy world.

Kesher (6th Grade)
Students in sixth grade will follow a project-based approach. Inspired by the Torah verse, “Tzedek, tzedek, tirdof,” “Justice, justice, you shall pursue” (Deuteronomy 16:18), students will collaborate with each other and their teacher to address a real-world problem.


TAAglit Atzmi (Personal Journey) • • •

TAAglit Atzmi (Personal Journey) is a triennial curriculum for students in 7th – 9th grade. The curriculum is uniquely designed to impact day school students and public school students alike. The TAAglit Atzmi program provides an opportunity for teens to interact and build lifelong friendships with teens throughout the Metro-Atlanta area. These friendships are a building block to developing a stronger Jewish identity and connection to the greater Jewish community. This coming year, students will look into the history of Southern Jewry and how we relate to that history and identify with it today. The program culminates in a road trip around the southeast.

AAtid (Our Future) • • •

AAtid (Our Future) is a program for teens in 10th – 12th grade. It runs on a multi-year rotation, each year with its own unique curriculum relating to the development and solidification of the participants’ Jewish identity. Each class will be based on primary sources from Biblical, Rabbinic, Medieval, and Contemporary texts. The goal for each student is to acknowledge their beliefs, and more importantly recognize where those beliefs originate. Our hope is that students will find insight in the Jewish wisdom that supplements each topic to help their own Jewish future. This year’s class will focus on The Jew in Me. This curriculum looks to the “BIG” questions that are usually associated with Judaism, including “What is God?” or “Why should I pray?” and “What kind of Jew do I want to be?” Students will look at thinkers ranging from the Rambam to Mordechai Kaplan and will see how the Jewish spiritual relationship evolved over the centuries. The goal of the course is to prepare students to enter the next stage of their Jewish spiritual lives as they enter adulthood. Parents and families are invited to join us for the Shabbat morning and evening sessions.

Chai Youth • • •

The Chai Youth community at Ahavath Achim Synagogue is a home for all Jewish kids and teens in Atlanta. What will you find in our community:
  • Diverse kids and teens
  • Fun social events
  • Educational and religious activities
  • Tikkun Olam (repair the world) opportunities
  • Friendships to last a lifetime
Machar (Tomorrow)
Children in 3rd - 5th grade will get together during the school year for fun, exciting events to start building a community. “Macharniks” get a taste of what the older youth groups do by participating in activities that include social, religious, athletic, social action and much more. Machar engages the children and creates friendships through its programs.

Kadima (Forward)
Teens in 6th - 8th grade become part an exciting community participating in monthly programs, lock-ins and weekly “lounge afternoons.” The programs include social, religious/education and social action to give our “Kadimaniks” a taste of what they will experience later in USY. Kadimaniks are able to attend conventions with Kadimaniks from all over the Hanegev Region and are given membership to Kadima internationally.

USY (United Synagogue Youth)
Teens in 9th - 12th grade make up our senior youth group offering a spectrum of programming that covers all aspects of Judaism, from social to religious services. Diverse programming is planned by the “USYers” themselves and is an important part of the Chai USY experience. By the time our youth move forward after participating in the Chai Youth Community, they should be confident and capable Jewish leaders. Our USYers also attend regional and international conventions with USYers from around the Southeast and North America.
