What is a ‘youth group’ you ask? As the name implies, Temple Isaiah has a group of youth who get together for purely fun opportunities. Open to all Temple Isaiah students in grades 3 and up, we have age-appropriate activities for social connectivity both inside and outside of the temple walls. The goal is to encourage friendship, Jewish identity and increase the likelihood of staying connected to the temple and to each other through high school and into young adulthood.
Now open to 3rd graders! We’ve re-shuffled and re-branded the groups and we are so excited to roll out the new groups. ITY (Isaiah Temple Youth, now for grades 8-12) is run by a board of teens voted in each year by teens at the temple. The ITY board meets twice a month to plan, organize, and run ITY’s monthly events. JITY (formerly Jr. ITY) for grades 6-7 and TUFFTY (formerly CLUB 456) for grades 3-5) each have a fun, social event every month. Temple Isaiah members, and friends from other synagogues are invited to our events and activities. Often times, we gather with other youth groups from other Southern California regions. We hope to see you at an event! View Calendar
