It is the mission of Congregation Agudath Sholom Youth Department to provide innovative religious and recreational activities for infants through senior teens, which infuse core Torah values and a general menschlichkeit into the daily lives of our youth.

Torah Tid-Bits

In this week's parsha we are told that it is not good for man to be alone. This was said about Adam when he was in Gan Eden- how bad could that be? He had everything he wanted, he didn't need another person! The Torah is telling us something very important. Even though we may have everything we want, if we have no one to share it with, we are lacking. Everyone needs a person to share with whether it be physically or emotionally. Once we do that, once we imitate Hashem, man will be "good."
