Youth Groups

At the core of our youth programs are the values of Reform Judaism. We seek to engage our youth in programming that is age-appropriate and engaging, while also deepening their connection to Judaism. Adult-supervised events such as sleep-ins (new for our younger group!), bowling, laser tag, and going out for pizza nurture lasting friendships. 

WeLFTY(West Lafayette Federation of Temple Youth) is for youths grades 8-12. WeLFTY has long been a source of joy and engagement for our youth to explore and live Reform Judaism. 

Rabbi Bellows has recently added two groups geared toward engaging younger youth. WeLFTY Jr is for youths in grades 6 and 7, while YOTI (Youth of Temple Israel) is for youth through grade 5.
