BATY (Beth Am Temple Youth) is made up of Jewish teenagers in 6th – 12th grade who want to make friends and give back to their community. By being involved in BATY youth have prime opportunities to make friends for life, use leadership skills, do good things for the community and be surrounded by kids just like themselves. This is a highly enthusiastic and engaging auxiliary of Temple Beth Am’s community.

All activities are supervised by the youth advisor and other youth-friendly adults. All participants must sign a code of conduct to participate in activities, so that youth group is a comfortable environment for everyone. The Temple Youth Committee, made up of adults and teens, meets several times a year in support of the youth groups.
