PROVTY (Providence Temple Youth) is Temple Beth El's High School Youth Group, serving teens in grades 9 -12, with many local events open to 8th graders as well.  *New this year, will be monthly Shabbat services and dinners open to students in grades 6-12 that are separate from the main service of the Temple.

The main goal for PROVTY is to provide a venue for Jewish teens to meet and develop friendships in a Jewish setting. This is accomplished with many local events such as Shul-Ins, Scavenger Hunts, Running of the Purim Carnival and much more.  

In addition, PROVTY members in grades 9-12 attend regional NFTY-NE (The Northeast regional of the North American Federation of Temple Youth).  These events such as dances, retreats and even a ski trip, strive to meet the social, educationa and spiritual needs of its members.
