Youth Groups

United Hebrew coordinates many vibrant groups for our youth for kindergarten through twelfth grade. Beginning in 6th grade the United Hebrew youth groups are affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism’s North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY).  NFTY is a Movement that builds strong, welcoming, inspired communities through teen-powered engagement. Together, we pursue tikkun olam, personal growth, youth empowerment, and deep connections, all rooted in Reform Judaism.

All youth members of United Hebrew are automatically members of our youth groups.
