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).
