NERTY (Ner Tamid Youth group) is our youth group for students in 6th-12th grades.  The teen-elected NERTY Officers organize and implement programs with the assistance of NERTY Advisors Matt Berenson and Johanna Kohler.  Programs include sessions with Rabbi Prass, educational and adventure trips, regular meetings, community outreach and youth led services including our annual Shabbat under the Stars. NERTY also encourages and supports regional NFTY (National Federation of Temple Youth) events with Jewish teens in the Greater Atlanta area and from around the Southeast.

In summary, the mission of NERTY is for “Kids to get together and have fun who happen to be Jewish.” 

For questions about how to get involved with any of these programs, please email Matt Berenson at
