T&V Teens

T&V Teens is for all students in grades 8-12, whose parents are members of T&V, to participate in fun programs and make a difference in their community. There are a variety of activities and programs designed by the teens and implemented with help from our Teen Coordinator, Landon Braverman. 

If you have any questions, program suggestions, or just want to say hi, you can email Landon at teens@tandv.org.

Meet Landon: 

Landon is a musical theatre composer and songleader from Vancouver, Canada now based in Brooklyn. He is the founder of Build Your Own Jewish Musical, an interactive program for overnight and day camps that allows kids to experience the joy of creating their own original musical from the ground up. When not teaching all across NYC, Landon is developing his own musicals and performing with his band RELATION. He has worked behind the scenes on Broadway and had his work performed at venues like Lincoln Center and 54 Below. He holds a Masters Degree in Musical Theatre Composition from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, as well as a B.A. (Drama) and B.Mus (Voice) from Mount Allison University in Canada. After moving to NYC, Landon attended various T&V 20s and 30s Shabbat dinners where he met many of his first friends and built his Jewish community in the city. He is beyond thrilled to officially join the staff and help build our community even stronger!

TEEN PROGRAMMING AT T&V 

USY YOUTH GROUP


USY is the international youth organization for Jewish teens, sponsored by the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. Our USY Youth Group gives high school students opportunities to spend time with other Jewish teens, while learning, praying, and giving back. 

Over the course of the year, we will have regularly USY Youth Group events. When not virtual, these have been game nights, scavenger hunts, movie nights, escape rooms, or something else entirely! Landon will check in with the group at our first teen program to get a sense of what kind of events you’d like, especially during this most unique time.  

Past events have also included Shabbat dinners, Chinese food & a movie, volunteer opportunities, Krav Maga, ice skating, bowling, rafting, and more!

MITZVAH DAYS

Join T&V for its 19th year in this incredible program. Once a month, we will have a volunteer opportunity for the group! In the past teens have visited soup kitchens, senior centers, and shelters. As we update our program to reflect the needs of our community and our teens during COVID, we will keep you posted. 

In doing these programs, we will apply our teen program discussions of mitzvot and social justice, as well as find new ways to contribute to our community. Community service credit will be given.
