Congregation Albert’s youth programs facilitate opportunities for Jewish youth to build their Jewish identity, perform acts of Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World), and connect with other Jewish teens in the Albuquerque community and throughout the Southwest.

Junior Youth Group

Shalom! We are please to introduce the NEW Congregation Albert Junior Youth Group (JYG) for students in grades 6-8.

In conjunction with congregational leadership, TASTY (Congregation Albert youth group for high school students) and our junior youth group advisors, JYGers will have the opportunity to build friendships, lifelong Jewish identities, and leadership skills through community building, worship, social action and experientIal youth-led programming.
