Tayarim Connect kicks off with a splash


Middle school students hang out in the pool during Tayarim's Kickoff event.

On Sunday, Sept. 7, Tayarim Connect kicked off the year with a pool party at the Roth Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando. Tayarim Connect is a program hosted by the Roth JCC for middle school students. This program, which is overseen by Abby Paulson, Youth and Camp director, brings together children in middle school from around the community for social, Judaic and community service programs. Over 20 middle schoolers attended the pool party, which started off with ice breakers led by local high schoolers designed for them to get to know each other.

Tayarim Connect offers positive and meaningful experiences to middle school students where they can get together with camp, school, and synagogue friends, as well as meet new friends. Tayarim Connect provides a safe space for teens to strengthen their identities, form social circles, and prepare for high school and beyond. There will be monthly events, which the program staff plans with the help of the middle schoolers. The next event is Survivor Sukkot, a sleepover at the Roth JCC the weekend of Oct. 11-12.
