GORFTY (Greater Orlando Federation of Temple Youth)
GORFTY is CRJ’s Senior Youth Group. They compose a board for the year and organize and implement activities throughout the school year. GORFTY is big on social action and connecting Jewish teens together in the community. GORFTY events take place throughout the whole school year, implementing Jewish values, education and Fun!

OAFTY (Orlando Area Federation of Temple Youth)
OAFTY is CRJ’s youth group for 6th - 8th graders. It is an opportunity for middle school-aged teens to mingle with other kids their own age through various events and programming. Since many children at this age are newly post-B’nai Mitzvah students, OAFTY is a great way for kids to be able to reunite with their former classmates in a fun, social and educational setting. Members of OAFTY also have the opportunity to get a taste of NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth) by experiencing events such as Hatikvah Kallah.For more information, please email: email@example.com
