PARTY 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th Graders
(8th graders join in January)
PARTY stands for Parkland Area Reform Temple Youth and is our senior youth group. We meet weekly on Monday nights as part of our Teen Night at Temple, one Thursday per month for lounge nights, and for periodic weekend events. PARTY’s wide range of programs and events gives everyone an opportunity to participate on the days that work for them! PARTY is peer-led by elected high school students serving on a board, and facilitated and chaperoned by adult advisors. As a member congregation of the Union of Reform Judaism, PARTY (Parkland Area Reform Temple Youth) is affiliated with NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth). As members of NFTY, we participate in three weekend kallot (weekend retreats) each year.
PARTY is not just a youth group – it is a family and a teen’s safe space. We are an ever-expanding, tight-knit group of high schoolers, whose friendships last a lifetime!
