Come Home to Barnert!


BarTY, which stands for Barnert Temple Youth, is the High School voice of the Barnert Temple community. BarTY is a part of NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), the national Jewish Reform teen movement, and NFTY-GER, NFTY's Garden-Empire regional group.

A youth group is meant to be a place for youth to grow, where one can find a different spiritual/emotional connection to Judaism through temple youth group programming and NFTY conferences. BarTY promotes informal education in the form of social action, religious experience, cultural programming and a social environment outside the classroom.

Each year, BarTY runs a variety of programs and events. Examples of these events include: 

  • Social get-togethers like group trips to Cirque Du Soleil, Great Adventure, Rockefeller Center Ice Rink, Dorney Park, Laser Tag, and New York City
  • Social service events like the chocolate tasting to raise money to end homelessness in NJ
  • "Food for Thought" dinner to raise money for a school in Cambodia
  • March Midnight Run to collect items to help the homeless in New York City
  • Preparing food for St. Paul's Men's Shelter.

BarTY has also had a larger role and presence in Temple-wide events. If you would like to become part of Barnert Temple's Youth Group, please contact our Youth Director.
