Temple Israel Senior Youth Group (TISY) is a youth group organization for all Fairfield County Jewish teenagers in 9th– 12th grade.  TISY participates in a mix of educational, religious, social and community-minded activities. TISY is led by a peer-elected Board, which plans all the year's activities. Being on the board is an incredible leadership opportunity for our youth. TISY also provides teenagers with the opportunity to connect with other Jewish teens in the area and establish lifelong friendships. Each January, 8th grade students are invited to join the TISY youth group. TISY is a member of North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY).

2016 trip to Austin, TX 

Visit their blog

Last year, 15 of our youth spent spring break fulfilling tikkun olam, as they served the community of Austin, TX. They made meals for the homeless, cleaned the Colorado River, organized donations at a food bank, volunteered at an animal shelter and senior center. In their free time, they toured the Texas State House, went to a baseball game and even got to visit with members of UT-Austin Hillel.
