2016-2017 TKAE Youth Program Registration
KAFTY (9th-12th Grade)
Our senior high school youth group is open to all 9th–12th graders, we offer a full calendar of events throughout the school year.
KAFTY events are social, religious, cultural, and most importantly fun! Experience overnight “Shul-In” sleepovers, sporting events including the Panthers and Marlins, theme parks, dances and much more.
KAFTY also has a number of leadership and community service opportunities available. Get involved by leading teen Shabbat services or hosting social action projects including volunteering at Children’s Harbor and the Ronald McDonald House.
In addition to the great events that KAFTY provides locally, we are members of NFTY-STR, the North American Federation of Temple Youth Southern Tropical Region, which offers weekend long regional and national events during the year for youth groups throughout Florida. Over 300 teens come together during each event for a weekend full of learning, socializing, social action, and community building.
OMGJK (7th-8th Grades) You must contact the Temple office to register for OMGJK!
OMGJK is a mix of Religious School and Youth Group for our 7th and 8th graders. OMGJK is an informal education model where students will learn through doing. Past programs have included examining what makes you proud to be Jewish and then making a Jewish symbol to take home, Learning what it's like to have a special need by being given a physical challenge while bowling and then discussing those challenges and how we can treat others with special needs.

Last year the group went to Atlanta and learned about the Civil Rights movement.
