Youth & Teen Programming

Temple Emanu-El has an active Youth and Teen community, with enriching and fun programs and events throughout the year.


SMARTY (Swampscott-Marblehead Area Reform Temple Youth) runs social, religious, and service programs for students in grades 3-12.  We often collaborate with our other Jewish organizations to expand students’ social circle and offer a broader array of programming options. Temple Emanu-El is part of the North Shore Middle School Youth (NSMY) Group, which leads exciting events and trips for Jewish middle schoolers.

Here are just a few of the events our kids are enjoying this year….

  • Pool party and movie
  • Loon Mountain ski weekend
  • Roller skating
  • Cooking a meal for My Brother’s Table
  • Shabbat dinner

For more information about SMARTY, please contact Jill Simmons at



Our 30 Madrikhim (teen volunteers/aides) help in classrooms and enrichment programs. They also serve as mentors to younger students.
