Jr. RTSY (Grades 5-7)

Our 5th – 7th grade Junior Youth Group programming offers exactly what pre-teens asked for – socialization! The kids love Saturday evening game and movie nights, and relish the opportunity to spend time in a comfortable environment with friends. Saturday night events always begin with havdalah, the service which signifies the end of Shabbat. Our youth show a special connection to this service and have created traditions at TRT which they hope to pass on to future Junior Youth Group members.

 Want to ensure that you are kept up to date on all happenings with Jr RTSY? Sign up to be a member! It is only $25 for TRT members and $36 for non-TRT members and you can sign up here
    A new youth programs initiative has been put into place this year with membership. Youths MUST become a member of their youth group when they attend their second event of the year.
