JeTY is Jeremiah’s Temple Youth Group for teens in 9th-12th grades. We have several programs a month!

Teen Service Trips

Each year, JeTYites take a trip to a place in need of our help. This unique program includes a Social Justice project and hands-on social action, allowing participants to develop leadership skills, Jewish learning and connections with other young people. In Summer 2018, we traveled to Costa Rica. These trips are made possible in part by the InterAct Fund for Youth Programming.

Jeremiah Buddies

Jeremiah Buddies is our special “youth group” for 2, 3 and 4 year-olds. We meet select Sundays 9:00–11:00 a.m. for a story, crafts, playtime and a delicious snack! Each month we focus on a different theme in Judaism. It’s a great opportunity for our youngest Jeremiah children to make new friends and for their parents to connect with one another.
