OKATY Mission Statement                   

OKATY (Oklahoma Association of Temple Youth) is our teen youth group. It is one of the most dynamic Reform youth groups anywhere. Its mission is to provide a home for teens to spend time with their Jewish contemporaries, meet Jewish teens from all over Oklahoma & Texas, broaden their connections to Judaism, and have tons of fun.
