Our goal with all the Youth Groups is to have young people feel good about being Jewish and feel comfortable and at home at our Temple. It is our hope that these groups provide children and teens the opportunity to:

  • Have fun with other kids and teens from TRS at events planned and scheduled by TRS
  • Continue to develop a Jewish identity by hanging out with other Jewish kids and teens as well as incorporate Jewish activities into their lives

Chaperones make our events possible!  All chaperones must be at least nineteen years old and have graduated high school.  Interested in being a TRSTY chaperone? Let us know!
