Beth Am Temple Youth (BATY): 
9th to 12th GradersBATY

Beth Am Temple Youth (BATY) is a teen-led youth group for 9th through 12th graders headed by our Director of Youth Engagement, David Lizzo. “BATYites” forge and build friendships, lifelong Reform Jewish identities, and leadership skills through community-building, worship, social action, and experiential youth-led Jewish educational programming.

Programs may include evening events, skiing, Shabbaton Shul-Ins, attending a national leadership camp with hundreds of Jewish teens from across North America, making a difference in someone's life with a mitzvah project, concerts, or social action. The goals of BATY are to instill Jewish identity, increase synagogue participation among high school youth, foster long-term commitment to the ideals and values of Reform Judaism, and create today the Reform Jewish congregants of tomorrow.

BATY at Camp Kalsman

BATY has an incredible 2016-2017 season planned, with over 50 individuals attending events and our NFTY Spring Kallah at Camp Kalsman. Our relationship-driven program has come a long way in building the youth culture at Temple Beth Am this year, and we look forward to another exciting year. 

Please contact David Lizzo, Director of Youth Engagement, with any questions.
