Youth Groups

Growing into young adulthood, our students have the opportunity to work together in social, cultural and social action activities as they continue to craft the people they are to become. Doing so in a Jewish environment, they have the potential to build upon the values we have been teaching. Efforts are made to join our youth with those of other synagogues in order to broaden their Jewish social experiences.  Working in partnership with the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY), we strive to connect our students to other Reform youth in the Pittsburgh area, Pennsylvania region, North America and around the world through summer camping, Israel trips and retreats.
