STIFTY, our Shir Tikva Temple Youth Group, is the home of our informal teen social programming, social action projects, teen peer-leadership programming, as well as our regional link to NFTY events. STIFTY is geared towards opening up social opportunities for our teens – an avenue to remain involved and stay socially connected with (or to build new social connections with) their peers, especially for teens who may not be able to make commitments to our programs that meet regularly. STIFTY events are isolated and open to any TST or unaffiliated Jewish teen, making it easy to attend just one or all of them!

  • Apple Picking
  • Laser Tag
  • Nostalgia Night
