Youth Activities

3rd, 4th & 5th Grade TWYG

TWYG (TWeen Youth Group) for 3rd-5th Graders holds programs 3-4 times a year. These programs are planned by parent volunteers.


Beth Torah's Junior Youth Group (JYG) is for all 6th, 7th and 8th graders.  Monthly programs will be held during the school year.  JYG advisor is Zach Zwibelman.


Beth Torah Temple Youth (BTTY), our youth program for 9th - 12th grade students, helps these teens become informed, active, committed adults who will contribute to the future of Judaism. BTTY is affiliated with the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY) and is part of NFTY’s Missouri Valley Region, including Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, and part of Illinois. 

BTTY Advisor is Alexa Kitt

BTTY elects officers and board members each year who take the lead in planning and executing BTTY programs, with the assistance of the adult volunteers. The BTTY President holds a place on Beth Torah’s Board of Trustees and BTTY members serve on the congregation’s standing committees. BTTY is a very active group and has won many regional programming awards. Programs and meetings are held about twice a month and are planned by the teens. Most programs have an educational component in addition to social activity. 

Additionally, these teens participate in many social justice projects throughout the year. BTTY members have the opportunity to travel to different communities within the region for Chavurot (weekend conventions) several times each year.   Click here for BTTY News
