TOUCHY: The Original United CHarter Youth

Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Grades
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter

TOUCHY fosters leadership skills through a balance of community building, worship, social action, weekend retreats and experiential Jewish programming planned and facilitated by our teens, for our teens. TOUCHY is an active part of NFTY, the North American Federation of Temple Youth and our region, NFTY-STR (Southern Tropical Region). TOUCHY meets on Wednesday nights. Our Temple Youth Group (TYG) is run by an elected Board of Officers who plan events such as our Creative Shabbat Service, Ice Skating, Minute to Win It, holiday-themed programs, and community service and fundraising events. Through joint TYG and regional events, TOUCHY is aware of a larger Jewish world while learning how to become an active and influential part of it.

OUR CONGREGATION WANTS YOU… & YOUR FRIENDS TOO!!

If you want to check out our activities, RSVP for one of our fun events and give it a try. It’s a great way for teens to make friends in our community, whether they attend Religious School, are new to town or just want to meet new friends their age. It is a group for anyone and everyone with a good attitude. You do not need to be a member of Temple Dor Dorim to join TOUCHY.

For more information contact Jamie Mafdali, Youth Director at 954-389-1232, Ext. 107.
