Youth Group

Our youth group, SRFY, is open to any Jewish high school student in Santa Cruz County.

Temple Beth El’s fabulous youth group has long been one of the strongest youth groups in the Union for Reform Judaism’s Central West Region (NFTY-CWR). Your teens will experience the close friendships that are pivotal to their Jewish identity by participating in our dynamic assortment of programs, including ski trips, sleepovers, beach bonfires, social action projects, creative services and more. SRFY members have the opportunity to attend amazing regional events at Camp Newman with hundreds of Jewish teens from other synagogues, as well as life-changing national NFTY conclaves. SRFY members have gone on to become leaders in the larger community, including national president of NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), and Santa Cruz mayor! For more information you can friend SRFY on facebook or e-mail our advisor at
