Youth Groups and Teen Program Support

There are currently two youth groups in the community – a chapter of the National Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY) called TRYB, sponsored by Temple Adath Israel and USY sponsored by Ohavay Zion Synagogue teens. Both groups are open to all teens in the community and currently JFB will be planning supportive programming for both groups.

The Jewish Federation supports the Jewish community’s teens by providing assistance for youth group members to attend programs and conventions, as well as providing scholarships for teens to attend Jewish resident camps or participate in organized trips to Israel.
