SAFTY (Grades 8-12)


SAFTY is the senior youth group at Temple Beth-El and is the San Antonio chapter of NFTY, the North American Federation of Temple Youth.
Each year members of SAFTY elect their own student leadership board who organize and run all SAFTY events.
The calendar is filled with social opportunities, social action events, student-written services and religious observations, regional youth group retreats, and more.
From lock-ins to the Yom Kippur food drive to laser tag, SAFTY has something for every teen at Temple Beth-El and in San Antonio! 

SAFTY is run by teens and advised by Joel Swedlove, Director of Youth Programs and Informal Education
