WAFTY 9 - 12

Welcome to our Sr. WAFTY Youth Group Page!

SENIOR WAFTY (Grades 9 – 12)

Socialize, learn, & share in a friendly, Jewish atmosphere! Through Sr. WAFTY, members participate in a variety of special programs: extreme bowling, dinner and discussion series, Hanukkah party, a regional Shul-in sleepover that WAFTY hosts, community service projects, and an annual Creative Shabbat Service. A student board of current WAFTY members along with the Youth Adviser develop programs to make for some very exciting events.

WAFTY is also a member of NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), the youth division of the URJ. NFTY-NE (Northeast) is our parent organization and is made up of over seventy other Temple youth groups from the New England area. WAFTY takes part in monthly NFTY-NE programs including week-long institutes, weekend conclavettes and regional dances hosted by other congregations. NFTY-NE events are a great place for students to meet other Jewish teenagers or reconnect with camp friends.
