TRSTY is Temple Rodef Shalom’s youth group for our high school students (grades 8 through 12). We have many events throughout the year that build lifelong friendships, Jewish identity, and community among our teens. Teens in this group have the freedom to plan their own events, gain and hone leadership skills, and work together to create a thriving teen community.

TRSTY Events & Membership

Check out our active event calendar here! Select “Youth” in the calendar view.

TRSTY is a fun and exciting way to meet other Jewish teens from temple and the NFTY community. Teens work collaboratively on an Executive Board to plan their own programming with the assistance of a Youth Professional!

Dates and times may shift as the event approaches.  Check back for eventbrite links on the calendar or in the Teen Schmooze.
