• Teens Experience an Immigration Program on the Mexico Border

    From March 27 to April 1, 2017, fifteen high school students from Beth Emet The Free Synagogue traveled to the U.S./Mexico border, spending six days at Cristo Rey Lutheran Church, an organization that runs a Border Immersion Experience. The following are reflections from two teen participants, written during the trip.

As URJ Youth's signature year-round program, more than 8,000 6th through 12th graders participate in NFTY programs that teach compassion, fight injustice, engage with Israel, and build community. NFTY is the safe, home-away-from-home that inspires our teens to become their best selves and empowers them to change the world.
