In addition to learning done in the classroom, we invite 6th through 12th graders to participate in “Temple Austin Beth Shalom Youth” (TABSY), and TABSY Jr., our Temple youth groups. Youth do not have to be registered Religious or Hebrew School students to be a member of TABSY or TABSY Jr.

Our Temple youth groups are part of over 500 Reform congregation youth groups in North America that operate under the umbrella of the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY). We are part of the Texas-Oklahoma Region (NFTY-TOR). NFTYites strive to forge an identity in consonance with the goals and values of Reform Judaism.

NFTYites build friendships, lifelong Reform Jewish identities, and leadership skills through community building, worship, social action, and experiential youth-led Jewish educational programming. Many NFTYites serve as NFTY leaders on the local TYG, regional, and even North American levels. Many NFTY Leaders continue on to become both lay and professional leaders of the Reform Jewish Movement.

TABSY Jr. is Temple Beth Shalom's youth group for 6th and 7th graders. 

  •  TABSY Jr. has several events a semester, including going to Greene Family Camp twice a year to socialize and learn with other middle school students in our region. There are also sub-regional events, like paddle boarding on Lake Travis, and fun events right here in our building like shul-ins and Chanukah parties.
  •  Being part of TABSY Jr. is free and open to all Beth Shalom 6th and 7th graders.

TABSY is Temple Beth Shalom's senior youth group for 8th through 12th graders. 

  •  TABSY participates in a variety of local and regional events, including social events here in Austin and traveling to other cities around Texas (and to Greene Family Camp!) for NFTY events.
  •  This year we will be hosting the CenTex Lock-In (a sub-regional NFTY event with our Austin-area friends).
  •  Each year of TABSY is a little different! TABSY is headed up by a youth board that changes every year.
  •  You are invited to come to your first local TABSY event for free! After that, there is a registration fee of $36. Regional and sub regional youth events have additional costs, but no one will be turned away due to financial reasons.
