TBY's vibrant youth programming combines social events, Jewish celebrations, and community service to foster a strong Jewish foundation. From Chanukah parties to Mystery Bus Trips, Shabbat dinners to Improv Comedy nights, and Chocolate Passover Seders to rock climbing, TBY's youth groups keep our kids connected.

Temple Bat Yahm is excited to be a new chapter of BBYO PWR (Pacific West Region). BBYO offers many opportunities for our Teens to be engaged in the greater Southern California Jewish community, and the Global BBYO community. You can find more information about BBYO on their website here!
