TLC is all the ways Bet Torah engages our 8th-12th graders.

We invite teens in 8th-12th grade to explore their rich Jewish heritage and challenging modern lives through a variety of learning and community building programs. TLC programs in 2020-21 will continue to gather regardless of whether we are meeting in person or remotely.

Join us for exciting and innovative teen programming!
