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.

    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.
