Young Adults

Boston Temple Young Adults (BTYA) is a community within the larger Boston Temple congregation for the young and young at heart. We occasionally get together for social events, and meet regularly each Sabbath right after potluck for BTYA Forum—a discussion group typically based around a book or article.
