SoMPTY (Sparks of My People Temple Youth) is our energetic youth group for 6th through 8th grade students. Led by youth advisors and guided by our senior youth group board, SoMPTY is designed for socializing and relationship building within our community. Whether engaging in fun activities or social action projects, the teens develop an appreciation for Jewish community and their own worthiness as pre-teens.
