BeTween: Growing Healthy Jewish Girls

BeTween helps Jewish girls strengthen and support their bodies, minds, and spirits through fun programs with other Jewish girls. The adults in their lives – parents, teachers, coaches –access information and resources to help girls navigate the turbulent pre-teen years with confidence and understanding about their bodies, relationships, and roles in their communities.

BeTween supports Jewish girls in grades 3 through 8, and is administered by JCC Chicago. Programs for girls are offered by Response, JCC and other partner organizations. Response and JCFS offer parenting programs and support groups. Visit our calendar for all dates and times.

Sibshops offer brothers and sisters of children with special needs an opportunity to meet other siblings in a relaxed, supportive, and recreational setting. Participants share common joys, common concerns, and learn to handle sibling-specific "sticky situations." Sibshops are a mix of games, discussion, food, and fun! 

Sibshops are currently offered one Sunday afternoon each month in Northbrook. Teen Sibshops are offered as requested.
