Creating opportunities for meaningful, purposeful and relevant Jewish exploration.
Buffalo Jewish Teen Initiative
The Buffalo Jewish Teen Initiative, a project of LiNK Jewish Buffalo, offers a series of experiences to help Buffalo’s teens (grades 8-12) authentically encounter Judaism. Experiences are designed so that Jewish teens can build their knowledge, self-esteem, leadership and life skills, and shape their identity. The Buffalo Jewish Teen Initiative works in partnership with all Jewish youth programs in Buffalo and is guided by an extraordinary group of adult and teen volunteer leaders.
