Welcome to BarTY: Where We Keep it Kosher!
BarTY, which stands for Barnert Temple Youth, is the High School voice of the Barnert Temple community. BarTY is a part of NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth, www.nfty.org, the national Jewish Reform teen movement).
The Youth Group is meant to be a compliment to post Bar Mitzvah classes, but some of the members find a spiritual/emotional connection to Judaism through Temple Youth Group programming and NFTY conferences alone. Our Youth Group promotes informal education in the form of social action, religious experience, cultural programming and a social environment outside the classroom.
Each year, BarTY runs a variety of programs and events. Examples of these events include:
- Social Get-Togethers like group trips to Cirque Du Soliel, Great Adventure, Rockafeller Center Ice Rink, Dorney Park, Laser Tag, and New York City.
- Social service events like the Chocolate Tasting to raise money to end homelessness in NJ; Food for Thought dinner to raise money for a school in Cambodia; March Midnight Run to collect items to help the homeless in New York City; and preparing food for St. Paul's Men's Shelter.
- BarTY has also had a larger role and presence in Temple-wide events.
If you would like to become part of Barnert Temple's Youth Group, please contact our President.
