JIFTY

JIFTY

Junior Indianapolis Federation of Temple Youth, or JIFTY, is the Jewish Youth Group (JYG) program for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at IHC. JIFTY helps transition our members from our adult-led youth groups (Small Chai & Rishonim), to our youth-led group, IFTY. We offer a variety of social and social action events throughout the year. JIFTY has a Board comprised of driven members with an interest in leadership. The Board helps to plan and select events, design programming, and promote the events to the broader Jewish community. Skills developed in JIFTY help prepare our members for participation in future IFTY events after they reach High School. NFTY-OV, our regional High School youth group, hosts a JYG weekend each Spring, and all of JIFTY is invited to participate and meet other youth from around the region. JYG Weekend is a great way for members to reconnect with friends from around the region who they met at camp!
