BESSY 2017 for web

BESSY (Beth Emet Senior Synagogue Youth) is the community's highly active, peer-led youth group for high school-age participants. Through monthly, teen planned events, BESSY provides both Jewish social space for its peers as well as an integrated approach to Jewish social action. BESSY is a highly visible asset to Beth Emet – building our community through its constant stream of activity. The BESSY Leadership Board is an all-youth board supported by Youth Programs staff and meets regularly to plan activities, often striving to recognize and fulfill the needs of our greater synagogue community. The relationships built in BESSY go beyond the strictly social to encourage and build the leaders not just of tomorrow but of today.

BESSY is NFTYNFTY (National Federation of Temple Youth, a program of the URJ) affiliated. Teens are encouraged to participate in regional NFTY events throughout the year!
