The United Synagogue Youth (USY, for high school age students) and Kadima (6th, 7th, and 8th graders) participate in local, regional and international activities.

Temple Beth Or runs a weekly Bingo game. The Bingo game is open to the community and raises much needed funds for the Temple which allows us to keep our annual dues low. Congregants are asked to donate their time to run the game working as callers, runners, ticket sellers, etc. The Sisterhood also staffs the kitchen where sandwiches, drinks, pretzels, knishes, and candy are sold.
