Applications are now open for NFTY Task Forces!

Home » Applications are now open for NFTY Task Forces!

We are thrilled to announce that NFTY’s Task Force applications are now open! As an official Task Force member, you can help guide NFTY and congregations on topics important to teens and our Movement.

Throughout September, we held a series of interest calls for those who were interested in the Task Force topic and involvement. These calls were used as an opportunity to brainstorm ideas and priorities for the future of the Task Forces. Thanks to the input and ideas from so many of you, we were able to set goals for each Task Force and are ready to put together an official team.

If you are interested in partnering with experts and peers to create change, this is the perfect opportunity for you! Descriptions of each task for and links to the applications can be found below.

Note: You may apply to more than one Task Force, but please be aware that each one is a time commitment. Please do not apply to more than three.

All applications must be submitted by October 28.
