LEXTY (Lexington Temple Youth) is Temple Adath Israel’s high school youth group. LEXTY has its own Board of Officers which is responsible for LEXTY’s programs. Our programs include social events, religious services, and social action projects which promote an active Jewish youth group for the purpose of learning and building Jewish community among the teens of our congregation.
LEXTY is affiliated with NFTY Ohio Valley. NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth) is the Reform Jewish movement that builds strong, welcoming, inspired communities through teen-powered engagement. Together, we pursue tikkun olam, personal growth, youth empowerment, and deep connections, all rooted in Reform Judaism.
The Ohio Valley Region of NFTY serves Jewish teens in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee and West Virginia. Our teens come together at many times during the year for learning, fun, worship, community service, and fellowship in a warm, welcoming, and safe environment.
