SoSTY (Sinai of Stamford Temple Youth)
The goals of North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY) are simple - to instill Jewish identity, to increase synagogue participation among high school youth, to encourage long-term commitment to the ideals of Reform Judaism and to shape the Reform Jewish congregations of the future. SoSTY hopes to live up to these goals and values, and to make Temple Sinai a second home for Jewish teens in Stamford and surrounding areas.
If you have joined us in the past, or if you have never heard of SoSTY but can't wait to get involved in all the goings on, please contact Emily Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
