Youth

SSTY (Shaarai Shomayim Temple Youth) is our high school youth group and NFTY/PAR (North American Federation of Temple Youth/Pennsylvania Area Region) affiliate.  All 9-12 grade religious school students are automatically members of SSTY and NFTY/PAR.  With the help of Rabbi Paskoff and SSTY advisor, Sophie Richards, our students plan and implement local monthly programs, team with other youth groups in the region, and participate in NFTY/PAR events.  One of our graduates, Amanda Selfon Wachstein, is the regional NFTY/PAR adviser.
 
Some of our recent activities include:
 
Sukkot Picnic with Israeli food
Campfire Havdalah at Cherry Crest Adventure Farm in Ronks, PA
SSTY Shabbat, run entirely by students and centering on a central theme, followed by a Shul-In at the temple
Ice cream social/discussion on "Celebrating the 'Holiday Season' as a Jewish Teen"
Field Trip to Baltimore Inner Harbor
