we didn’t realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun
HBTeens, our umbrella teen community, provides many opportunities for teen engagement at HBT. From lounge nights, to community service, to leadership training, travel and more. Teens get involved at HBT to gain new experiences and skills, help repair the world, expand their network, connect jewishly, and to spend time in a safe and welcoming environment. Teens are always welcome to bring their non-member friends to any of our programming.
HABSTY (Holy Awesome Blossom Senior Temple Youth)
All teens who are members of HBT are considered part of HABSTY, our senior youth group. HABSTY is led by a teen board. In addition to hosting weekly lounge nights on Mondays in our Youth Lounge, HABSTY offers additional interactive, fun and engaging programming, open to all teens. HABSTY also organizes a large fundraising/social action initiative each May: the HABSTY Bagel Project. HABSTY is active in NFTY-NEL, and teens participate in regional weekend events hosted in other cities and camps throughout the year.
