Youth and Teens

Baltimore’s premier shul youth and teen program!

Our youth and teens take center stage at Shomrei Emunah! From our standout Shabbos and Yom Tov groups to holiday programming and special events, our Youth and Teen Department provides dynamic and meaningful opportunities for children and teens of all ages.

Led by Elisheva Frenkel (Youth Director) and Rabbi Mordechai Bennett (Teen Director), our youth and teen programs make Shomrei a special place for kids to develop strong relationships and a deeper attachment to their community and shul.
