Recognizing that informal education and social opportunities create memorable moments and deepen Jewish identity, The Temple has established three different youth groups.

MINI TEFTY - 5th & 6th Grade Youth Group

Through a variety of activities, our dynamic 5th and 6th graders become enthusiastic members of The Temple community. They organize and are actively involved in tzedakah events, holiday gatherings and social outings.

JUNIOR TEFTY - 7th & 8th Grade Youth Group

This motivated group of 7th and 8th graders enjoys religious, social, and community service events. Their exciting programs include volunteering at the Cleveland Foodbank, City Mission, and Habitat for Humanity, as well as ski trips and fundraisers.

TEFTY - Senior Youth Group (High School)

9th through 12th grade students are active in regional conclaves, community projects, and social activities. Meeting with other Jewish high school students in Cleveland and throughout the region, they become committed and active members of the Jewish community. TEFTY is part of the Union for Reform Judaism, North America Federation of Temple Youth. We are part of the Northeast Lakes Region, where they participate in local and regional kallot (study weekends) as well as enjoy social functions.


Need some help paying for youth activities? We can help you if you complete a Financial Aid Application funded through The Temple-Tifereth Israel Teen Scholarship Fund & TWA Youth Endowment Fund. You may access this form in an ONLINE version or a PRINTABLE version.  If you need help, please fill this out as soon as possible so that we might be able to meet the early-bird discount dates.
