Youth Groups


Michelle Scull is excited to be our new Youth Director. Michelle also happens to be RTR’s School Coordinator, a teacher at our religious school and an LCSW practicing individual, couples and family therapy. In addition to these roles, Michelle has been involved as a girl scout leader for the past nine years and serves as a Service Unit Manager for approximately 12 troops. She is a member of the Felix Festa PTA Executive Board and runs the Reflections Arts Program for the school. Michelle most loves spending time with her 13-year-old twins, Jake and Abby, and planning all kinds of adventures for our youth.

RTR hosts a variety of Youth programs throughout the year for anyone in grades 3-12. There are loads of  fun activities, like  our annual Purim Carnival with games and prizes and the highly anticipated Hannukah party with Latke and Donut decorating contests. There are also opportunities to engage in social actions or Tikun Olam activities (Healing the World). 


In past years, our youth have put on  talent shows for local Senior Citizens homes and participated in a  Midnight Run,  collecting  and preparing food and clothing donations and  (the older kids) personally delivering them to Homeless communities in  New York  City. RTR Youth Group events are open to members and non-members alike. We are affiliated with NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth) the national Reform Jewish Youth movement, offering  an opportunity to gather with  Jewish youth from across the country.


And now, under Michelle’s direction, RTR has become a lead organizer of county -wide activities bringing together Jewish Youth (affiliated and non-affiliated) from across Rockland. The debut event, Pizza Making at Gio’s in New City, drew more than 60 kids.
