Temple Beth Or’s Youth Programs complement our schools by giving our young people the opportunity to make lifelong friends while participating in fun social activities and character-building community service projects.
RALFTY (Raleigh Federation of Temple Youth)
RALFTY provides both social and community service activities for TBO high school students.RALFTY members come together many times during the year for learning, fun, worship, community service, and fellowship which helps build and strengthen lifetime ties with each other and with Reform Judaism. RALFTY is part of the North American Federation of Temple Youth’s Mid-Atlantic Region, and many of our youth participate in regional events in addition to the local events.
Yearly events include special High Holiday services, beach trips, Triangle and Triad area lock-ins, ski trip, social action projects, and lots of hanging out time with good friends. Advisor: Nathan Markiewitz
RALFTY Jr. (Junior Raleigh Federation of Temple Youth)
Jr. RALFTY is TBO’s middle school youth group. Members also participate in the National Federation of Temple Youth’s (NFTY) Mid-Atlantic Youth Kallah program. Local events include many social programs, as well as community service projects. Advisor: Carolyn Sloan

Youth Together is now RALFTY Breishit (for K-2) and RALFTY Sha’ar (for 3rd-5th) for TBO children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade and children in 3rd-5th grade.
