BNTY stands for B’nai Torah Youth Group. It is B’nai Torah’s local chapter of NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), a high school youth group for grades 9–12. Participating in BNTY gives teenagers the opportunity to make lifelong friendships, remain connected to their local Jewish community and the Jewish community at large, participate in Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), and gain valuable leadership experience that they will take with them throughout their entire lives. We have meetings once a month to discuss upcoming events and activities. Additionally, we hold one or two events per month. These events are usually social, religious, or focused on social action, and they are always FUN! We also attend events planned by NFTY-NE, our regional chapter of the national youth group for reform Jews. Dues are $36 for B’nai Torah members and $46 for nonmembers.
Jr. BNTY is for grades 6–8 and it holds events about every six weeks. Many of the events are social, but Jr. BNTY also participates in some religious and social action activities as well. Participation in Jr. BNTY is highly recommended, as it gets kids excited for the high school youth group! Dues are $10 for B’nai Torah members and $20 for nonmembers.
Please check back frequently for monthly updates, detailed information on upcoming events, photos from past events, and much more!

BNTY teens and a few parents volunteered at the Pine Street Inn. With a tremendous response to the call for support, over 20 volunteers helped serve men and women of Boston who have struggled during this cold and snowy winter. The feedback received from the volunteers was that the experience was incredibly rewarding and that members of the larger congregation should follow the lead of its teens and volunteer at the Pine Street Inn, (and other places like it), more frequently. To see for yourself what it was like, take a look at more photos from the day HERE.
