Junior Beth Am Temple Youth (jBATY): 
6th to 8th Graders

jBATY Kick Off 2017All of Temple Beth Am's 6th - 8th graders are invited to be a part of our Junior Youth Group programs and events, held throughout the school year combining social fun, tikkun olam, and spirituality. Some events are huge and include Jewish tweens from all over the greater Seattle area, some are smaller and include tweens just from TBA.

Our most popular annual events include the limo scavenger hunts and movie nights. All programs are planned by our Director of Youth Engagement, David Lizzo, with input from the students and the senior youth groupers as well as the other Reform congregations.

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