Come join the journey of friendship, fun and Jewish life that starts in 1st grade and continues through 12th grade. There is a fun event just around the corner for you to join.


  • Teen Youth Group (TYG) for 9th-12th grade
  • Youth Group for 6th-8th grade
  • Youth Group for 3rd-5th grade
  • Youth Group for 1st-2nd grade


We invite you to join an exciting and fun part of so many of our teens' lives here at NSCI--TYG. We offer programming from social outings like trips to a corn maze for Sukkot to tikkun olam (repair of the world) projects like making fleece blankets for the homeless. TYG events are always great. TYG also offers two weekend-long retreats each year.

  • The Jeffrey Lasky Memorial Arts Retreat in the fall is a three-day retreat which enables teens to explore Judaism and Jewish identity through artistic expression, and has themes like "Depicting the Torah through Hip Hop Slam Poetry" and "Garage Band and the Akeidah."
  • The Elaine N. Sherman Karav Retreat in the spring is a four-day identity retreat, planned and implemented entirely by teens for teens. Click HERE to fill out the 2018 KARAV registration form.

The energy of the TYG comes from the contributions of all its members who attend high schools across the North Shore, as well as our TYG Advisor, Neil Rigler, who has been in his position for 23 years and is also a well-known English teacher at Deerfield High School. TYG is led by a board of teens elected by their peers.

The 2017/2018 officers are:

Rosh Karav/TYG President - Isaac Freedman
Chair of Programming - Elliott Gold
Chair of Social Action/Karav Theme - Lev Grosshandler
Chair of Worship - Max Nguyen
Chair of Publicity/Dec-Prep - Joni Rosenberg
