Club 345 is a youth group at Adath Shalom aimed at giving third, fourth and fifth graders the opportunity to connect with others their age in a fun and social environment. Club 345 is a great way to introduce your children to the benefits of being apart of an organization. We hope that the youth at our synagogue feel a sense of community and continue affiliating with Jewish centered organizations.
