JTY (Judea Temple Youth) is Temple Judea’s senior youth group for teen in 8th-12th grade, and is an integral element in the youth department of Temple Judea. JTY is active in the Temple community and includes social, educational, religious and cultural, social action and social justice-related components in their events. Participant’s come together Monday evening from 7:45-9:00 following Judea High to enjoy programs featuring social, religious, social action, and educational components. Teens also have opportunities to attend regional and national events where teens join one another for weekends of Jewish learning, leadership development and fun.
An important aspect of our programming is our membership with the Union for Reform Judaism’s national youth movement; the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY). NFTY is comprised of over 450 youth groups spanning the United States and Canada and are divided into geographical regions.
JTY is part of the Southern Tropical Region (NFTY-STR). As a member of NFTY-STR, JTY teens have the opportunity to meet other Jewish teens from around the state of Florida when they participate in regional events hosted by Temples in our region. Regional events are called Kallot and are held throughout the school year.
