SULAM, Temple Sinai of Roslyn's teen program department, has dozens of ways for teens to get involved! 

Our programs run the gamut from cooking classes to Fantasy Football leagues, from leadership and advocacy training to volunteering with children from homeless shelters and just about everything in between. More than 130 teens join us annually to enhance their Jewish education, to repair the world, to feel connected and to spend time in a safe and welcoming environment.  In addition to our weekly or monthly programs, we have amazing trips and single-day events. 

Teens registered in all of our programs are considered part of SORTY, our senior youth group. SORTY offers additional monthly interactive, fun and engaging programming to all teen members of Temple Sinai, regardless if you are enrolled in a year-long program. 
We can't wait for you to join us!
