DRTY Youth Group

A community and social network for 8th to 12th graders.

Coming up...

DRTY is our youth group program at CBH that creates a community and social network for our teens from eighth through twelfth grade. (Davis Reform Temple Youth is one interpretation of the initials, but not the only one.)

Members of DRTY are also invited to participate in NFTY, the national Jewish youth movement associated with Reform Judaism, at regional events.  Our DRTY chapter is led by an elected board of teens who meet monthly to develop programs and strengthen outreach to our teen community.  More information about events will be available following the DRTY Board Retreat in late August.  It is our pleasure to introduce our DRTY Board Members for the 2020-21 year:

  • Co-Presidents: Lily Schroeder & Ruby Kubby-Adler
  • Programming Vice-President: Mayah Moore
  • Social Action Vice-President: Leila Ordonez
  • Religious & Cultural Education Vice-President: Django Nachmanoff
  • Membership Vice President: Calla Weintraub
  • Communications Vice-President: Naomi Paskowitz
  • Treasurer: Noa Vinkurov
  • Eighth Grade Representative: Zachary Schroeder

We are excited to re-introduce Alexander Watson as our Teen Engagement Coordinator.  Alexander grew up in the Washington D.C. area where he was very involved in his synagogue, worked as a madrich, served on his temple youth group (TYG) board, and was actively involved in NFTY.  Alexander has worked with teens and young adults as a debate coach in Minnesota, at a summer program at Yale, as a Resident Assistant in college, and in his Peace Corps work in Liberia.  He is a graduate of Macalester College, spent a semester abroad at the University of Haifa, and is currently a full-time student at the UC Davis School of Law.  For more information about DRTY, you may contact Alexander at teens@bethaverim.org.

Enrollment is accepted at any time during the school year. If there is an unpaid balance from the last school year (2020-21), please contact the CBH office (530-758-0842) to make a payment.

DRTY Membership is now $225 bundled with Keshet or Confirmation, or for confirmation graduates. Without the bundle, fees are $270 for CBH Partners, and $300 for Non-Partners. There is a $25 per event fee if not registered for the annual DRTY membership.

A minimum payment of 50% of the unpaid balance from a previous school year is required before you can register your child for the upcoming school year, and a payment plan needs to be in place for the remainder of the balance. Current school year payment options include paying in full, quarterly, or monthly payments.  Financial assistance is available. Please review our tuition assistance policy, and then contact the  confidentially.
