Wherever you can find Reform Jewish teenagers, you will also find NFTY! As the youth arm of the Union for Reform Judaism, NFTY is comprised of over 450 Temple Youth Groups (TYGs) throughout the United States and Canada. These TYGs are in turn divided into our 19 regions.
NFTY’s heart and soul is the local Union for Reform Judaism affiliated synagogue Temple Youth Group (TYG). While each local TYG differs in organization, focus, size, and character, the Temple Youth Group is the outlet for the highly engaged Reform Jewish teenager in a Union Synagogue. While some TYGs only meet 5 times a year for social programs, other TYG’s meet over 20 times each school year and offer a full variety of social, leadership, educational, and social action programs.
TYG’s are linked together by geographic region into NFTY’s 19 regions. While each NFTY Region is somewhat unique in character, program, and traditions, each NFTY Region runs leadership training for local TYG’s, as well as a series of camp, hotel, or home-hospitality based conclaves or institutes that focus on Jewish themes, building community, worship, and social action for general NFTY Membership.
