NUTSY, our Newington United Temple Sinai Youth chapter, is Temple Sinai’s senior youth group for 8th through 12th graders. This vibrant group of teens is continually active with a wide range of activities. We have Lounge Nights, which alternate between meetings, hangouts, and interactive programs, every other Wednesday night in the Youth Lounge at Temple Sinai in addition to holding one local event a month! These are a few of our events: past, present, and future:
- The Haunted Graveyard at Lake Compounce
- Kickball in Elizabeth Park
- Shul-In’s (overnights at the Temple)
- Chanukkah Parties
- The Temple’s annual Purim Carnival
- A Chocolate Seder
- Apple picking with a youth group from Temple Sholom in New Milford
- Regional dances with other NFTY chapters
Our 9 – 12th graders are also part of NFTY–Northeast (the northeast branch of the North American Federation of Temple Youth), which includes all of the Reform Youth Groups throughout the Northeast! (Please note that some NFTY events do not include 8th grade NUTSY members.) NFTY-Northeast holds approximately one event per month, including dances, conclavettes (weekend long events hosted by Temples), Institutes (5-day overnight events packed with awesome programming, services, and fun at Eisner Camp), Senior Kallah (an end of the year event for Juniors and Seniors) and other awesome events throughout the year!
