Jr. PARTY, our youth group for 7th and 8th graders, is the “junior version” of PARTY (Parkland Area Reform Temple Youth). Jr. PARTY meets every Monday as a part of TNT (our Teen Night at Temple), once a month for Lounge Night, and periodic weekend events. Jr. PARTY’s wide range of programs and activities gives everyone an opportunity to participate on the days that work for them! Jr. PARTY is run by the Director of Youth and Family Programming and team of Youth Advisors. Jr. PARTY participates in one regional weekend kallah (retreat) each year, called Hatikvah Kallah, with the Sub-Tropical Region of the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY-STR). Jr. PARTY is a great opportunity for meeting new friends, developing leadership skills, exploring independence, and learning about being Jewish in an informal setting. Your experience as a Jewish teen does not end at Bar/Bat Mitzvah, it is only the beginning!
