YFTI (9th-12th grade)

YFTI We are back and BETTER. THAN. EVER. This spring is filled with exciting, fun and new IN PERSON events! At all programs we will be socially distanced and mainly outside with your friends at YFTI. Save these dates and let’s end this year TOGETHER! We missed seeing you!

YFTI is our fantastic high school youth group. Typical programming includes local, national and international trips, weekend retreats, social action opportunities, social events, and more – all designed BY and made FOR teens in 9th-12th grade.

While these activities are teen-driven, teens are guided and supervised by Rabbi Jen Lader and Rachel Kestenberg.

Join us for monthly Monday programming after ROOTS, and get involved as a leader. For more info, contact Rachel Kestenberg at 248-661-5700.
