• The True Acceptance I Found in NFTY

    My name is Benjamin Kline and I am a pansexual rising Junior in NFTY Mid-Atlantic Region (NFTY-MAR). When I share this personal information in the outside world, I usually receive one of two reactions: idolization or ostracization.

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.
