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 for Teens, JCC and other partner organizations. Response for Teens and JCFS Chicago offer parenting programs and support groups. Visit our calendar for all dates and times.
