Beth El Synagogue Teen Youth (BESTY) is our 9th - 12th grade peer-led youth group. It is affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism's national youth movement, NFTY–the North American Federation of Temple Youth. The region of NFTY that we live in is the Central West Region and includes URJ Camp Newman. Throughout the year there are regional, national and international opportunities available to our teens through NFTY.
