YICC Youth Department

Young Israel of Century City is proud of its longstanding, vibrant and exciting Youth Department! Led by our incredible team of Youth Directors, Educators and Staff we welcome children from ages 2-12 to our Shabbat Groups, where they are treated to only the best experiences in Tefillah, Parasha, games and of course snacks! Throughout the year the Youth Department hosts an array of events to celebrate the Chaggim, as well as creating other opportunities for YICC families to come together with their community!

Youth Director - Jesse Orenshein

Having grown up in the Shul and having held a number of educational and youth leadership positions in the community, Jesse is the perfect person to lead our Youth Department. Jesse served for four years as the Youth Director of Mogen David, worked at MJ Sports Camp where he served as Co-Director of the senior division, and is presently in his second year as the 5th and 7th grade English Language Arts teacher at Cheder Menachem.

Jesse is well known as a contestant on American Ninja Warrior and spent a brief stint as a personal trainer for children and parents.  A talented author, Jesse continues to write rhyming childrens books, which he self-publishes under his own company, Grandpa Herbie‚Äôs Stories. 
With his fascinating and diverse experiences, we are certain that Jesse will bring a lot of excitement, energy, and creativity to our Youth Department!
