Welcome to Jr. GORFTY! 7th and 8th graders are in for a super awesome experience! What is a “GORFTY”? GORFTY stands for Greater Orlando Reform Federation Temple Youth. That is what it stands for, but what does it REALLY stand for? It’s a group, it’s a place, it’s an experience. It brings together Jewish 7th and 8th graders for innovative, diverse and FUN programs.
