Creating opportunities for meaningful, purposeful and relevant Jewish exploration.
Middle School Engagement
LiNK Jewish Buffalo offers a multitude of living and learning experiences for Middle Schoolers (grades 5-8). Experiences are designed so that Jewish middle schoolers can see their friends while engaging in gatherings that build their knowledge, self-esteem, leadership and life skills, shape their identity and prepare them for high school. LiNK Jewish Buffalo works in partnership with all Jewish youth programs in Buffalo and is guided by an extraordinary group of adult and middle school volunteer leaders.
Want to learn more about Jewish Middle School programming in Buffalo? Reach out to us to meet over Zoom, for ice cream or coffee – we will come to you!
