Junior Youth Groups
TBA has Junior Youth Groups for students of all ages! Our youth groups get together to have fun and build closer friendships. Youth groups provide students with the opportunity to interact informally in a Jewish environment. In addition to building stong bonds among the members, youth group promotes a strong sense of belonging to the Brith Achim community and the Jewish community at large. Whether they are bowling, ice skating, trampolining, or hanging out playing games and watching movies, youth group enriches a students’ experiences and helps to strengthen a positive Jewish identity. Youth group members play a role in such Temple events as the Purim carnival and service project; participate in exciting trips and activities and on occasion, share events with other Reform Temple youth groups.
This year’s calendar of Youth Group events includes:
Our Junior Youth Groups feed into BRATY, our Senior Youth Group.
