SPeTY—High School Youth Group

At Temple Beth El, the San Pedro Temple Youth group (SPeTY) is run by our teens for our teens. Teen leaders plan events and activities throughout the school year, ranging from parties to “bond-fires,” mitzvah service projects to concerts, and overnights to field trips. SPeTY creates fun and engaging events to create fellowship, empowerment, and leadership among our youth community. We always welcome new members, as well as input on new events.

SPeTY is not solely for our local community – we are formally affiliated with the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY). Through NFTY, we are connected with Jewish youth across the nation. NFTY SoCal regional events occur approximately 5 times a year, with most weekend retreats in Malibu. Each retreat, called a kallah, focuses on social justice, community engagement, and building a strong Jewish identity – with a healthy dose of fun mixed in!

Scholarships are available to help defray the cost of NFTY kallah attendance.
