NFTY Alumni: New Newsletter for Alumni on Campus

With 75 years under our belt, the wide world of NFTY alumni spans generations. We want to bridge the gap between current NFTY members and the NFTY alumni network by creating resources specifically for our youngest group of alumni: those on campus. That’s why we’ve launched a brand new newsletter just for college students, featuring news, articles and events specifically targeted to this demographic.

Take a look at our first mailing below, share with a friend, and let us know if you want to be on the list for our next mailing in advance of the new school year!

We have just concluded the milestone celebration of NFTY at 75 and it is clear that so many NFTY alumni want to continue to be connected to each other and the Reform movement.

As a NFTY alum in college, you and thousands of your peers bring leadership skills, commitment to progressive Jewish values, and a passion for social justice to campuses around the world. You have helped plant the seeds of our growing NFTY alumni network and we hope that you’ll continue to share your creative ideas and energy with us. Below are some opportunities that we think college students will be particularly interested in.

Please take a minute to complete this survey, developed by NFTY-MAR alumnus Blake Dickler, and tell us what you would like to see from the NFTY alumni network.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

All the best,
Amy Bebchick
Director, NFTY Alumni Engagement
