JYGE, or Junior Youth Group Experience, is BHC's exciting group for 5th-7th graders. The goal of JYGE is to introduce kids to having a Jewish social life through fun and entertaining events. Throughout the year, JYGE has programs such as movie nights, sandwich-making for the hungry, youth lounge championships and more. OVer the past several years, JYGE has grown exponentially and is a great group for all interested 5th-7th graders.


BHeCTY stands for Baltimore Hebrew Congregation Temple Youth. This is the senior youth group at BHC, and we are one of the largest and most active youth groups in the Mid-Atlantic Region. BHeCTY is for 8th-12th graders. The goal of BHeCTY is to provide programming and leadership opportunities though creating a great calendar of social, religious and social action events. These events range from Open Mic nights to park cleanups to themed overnights and are primarily created by an elected board of teens. Moreover, BHeCTYites can attend regional and national events with the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY) througout the year. Truly, BHeCTY is a quality experience for all those involved.
