Welcome to JITY, Temple Isaiah’s Junior Youth Group for students in 6th and 7th grade. JITY offers exciting monthly events and is a great way to meet other Jewish teens with similar interests. We introduce Jewish youth group life to our 6th and 7th graders and prepare them for exciting and meaningful opportunities awaiting them in high school, under the supervision of our Assistant Youth Director, Zack Robinson.

Be a part of the decision-making process. Roughly once a month (dates below) on Tuesday evenings at dinner from 6:00 to 6:30 p.m. Any 6-7th graders are invited to plan the next event. Whether you’re able to come to one or all the Council meetings and subsequent events is up to you. Get a taste of youth group leadership before joining ITY in 8th grade and up!
Temple Isaiah members and friends from other synagogues are invited to our events and activities. Membership is FREE for Temple Isaiah members. We hope to see you at our next event!
Have a say in what you would like our activities to be and help run them! Any Temple Isaiah 6th-7th graders are invited to be on the council, and the commitment is whatever you want it to be. We’ll have open meetings once a month while Religious School is in session, and each meeting is independent of the rest. Come to one or come to all, just come!
Where to meet: Temple Isaiah Social Hall (During Dinner)
Hang with your friends at Isaiah once a month on Sunday afternoons in the youth lounge. We’ll have snacks, games, blankets, and tea to sip while spilling the tea. There will always be an exciting topic to kick us off but wandering conversations and laughs with friends are always welcome! The JITY Council will also have the opportunity to plan additional fun activities for some or all of these hangouts.
Where to meet: Temple Isaiah Youth Lounge (After Sunday School)
Explore different topics challenging our communities with Tzedek America on these fun and eye-opening afternoon trips. Past trips have included such issues as immigration, the LA housing crisis, food justice, and more. Details for each trip will be publicized ahead of time.
Bring your whole family for this evening of food and wild fun at Dave n Busters at the Howard Hughes Promenade. For those unfamiliar, Dave N Busters is an enormous restaurant & game center, filled with arcade games, exclusive video games, and some classic favorites (Mario Kart is Zack’s fav!) Plus, you’ll get to go home with some fun prizes and great memories with your friends and families.
Where to meet and pickup: Dave N Busters | Howard Hughes Promenade: 6081 Center Dr., Los Angeles 90045
