Youth Groups FAQs

How do I pay for events?
Most events can be paid for at the start of the event — either by cash or check. If the event is taking place after Religious School and you are worried your child might misplace it, feel free to drop the money off with Beth in the office (just stick it in an envelope with your child’s name on it). Occasionally during the year we have larger events with online registration — for these events, payment is made online.

How do I know if my child is a youth group member?
If a student is enrolled in school and/or are TI members, they are considered members of Club 23 or JYTI, and eligible to attend all group events.

Any 8th—12th graders whose family is a member of Temple Isaiah may attend SYTI events, however to become a member (and receive reduced rates on events and be eligible to attend regional NFTY events) they must submit a membership form and pay $18 dues.

Can my child bring a friend to a youth group event?
Youth group members are welcome to invite Jewish friends to the majority of our events, however overnight events and major trips are open only to youth group members. Non-members pay a slightly higher rate for events. Please contact Rachel for more information.
