BESTY Board 2013-2014/5774!

What is BESTY?
BESTY (BEth Shalom Temple Youth) our Senior Youth Group is open to all temple members grades 8-12, and is a program run largely by teens, for teens. The goal of BESTY is to make Judaism accessible to all, whether that is through direct learning, spending time with Jewish friends, or anywhere in between. BESTY hosts events once or twice a month, including lounge nights, ski trips, Fire and Ice, and more.

BESTY is affiliated with NFTY-NE, the youth division of the URJ. NFTY-NE is one of 16 national regions in NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), and is comprised of youth groups from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and parts of New York. On top of local youth group events, BESTY takes part in region-wide events with teens throughout the area.

The BESTY Board creates each event for the BESTY community on top of developing important leadership skills throughout the year. This year’s board was selected by a group of outgoing board members and their leadership. Each person applied to the board, and was carefully and thoughtfully placed into a position that was thought to be best suited for his or her skill set.

And the positions are…
  • President: Molly Shuman
  • Liaison Vice President: Margo Blank
  • Programming Vice President: Sammy Lerner
  • Social Action Vice President: Rebecca Resnic
  • Membership and Publicity Vice President: Gabi Sherman
  • Religious and Cultural Vice Presidents: Sammy Altman, Rachel Zaff
