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

AShTY (Am Shalom Temple Youth) is our high school youth board. They design, plan, and execute 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 Matthew Altman for more information, or stop by Am Shalom at any time and find any member of the AShTY team!

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.
