AShTY: Am Shalom Temple Youth (9th – 12th graders)

AShTY (Am Shalom Temple Youth) is our high school youth board. AShTY designs, plans, and executes their own events, with guidance from our youth programming team. Over the years, these events have included bonfires, beach parties, mini golf, sleepovers, and volunteering. Want to get involved? Reach out to Kadi House or Sarah Jane Heyman for more information, or join us for our weekly Wednesday night dinners at 6pm at Am Shalom!

AShTY is also involved with NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), the Reform movement's youth division. We are part of NFTY-CAR (Chicago Area Region), where we participate in a multitude of events.
