What is BESTY?

BESTY stands for Beth Elohim Senior Temple Youth, a teen run organization within CBE. We plan monthly programming for 9th-12th grade students at CBE. Our programming consists of events that focus on social justice, and sometimes our events are just social! We are the local level under the organization NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), and are a part of the New York Area Region (NFTY-NAR).

We also offer programming for middle school students through BESTY Jr.!

What does BESTY do?

We aim to create a space for our teens that empowers them to be the best they can be! We hold lots of amazing events during the course of the year. Also, students who are involved in BESTY are eligible to take part in NFTY programming.
