Youth Groups


BESTY (BEth Shalom Temple Youth) is the Temple Youth Group (TYG) at Temple Beth Shalom. BESTY is a place for students to make connections with peers that are not in their weekly mifgash and to deepen relationships that they have already made. BESTY events are social gatherings, and are open to all TBS kids within each grade level, regardless of their Mayim enrollment.
