To be a NFTYite means being a leader.
To be a NFTYite means pushing our movement forward.
To be a NFTYite means coming together in difficult moments.
To be a NFTYite, means remembering where you came from so you know where you are going.
To be an Alum of NFTY means to be a NFTYite for life.
You are forever a NFTYite, and we need your voice now more than ever.

NFTY is entering its 81st year as a youth movement and is now at a pivotal point in our existence. As a result of COVID-19 and the changing world, NFTY is on the cusp of a new chapter. As alumni, we have all contributed to NFTY’s story, building a foundation that the current and future NFTYites will add to. Given your contributions as a NFTY alum, we want to invite you to share your experience with us to help draft the next chapter of NFTY’s story.

As we begin this new chapter, please join in partnership with NFTY teens and participate in Think Tank Meetings throughout the summer. To join in the conversation and learn more, visit nfty.org/future. These Think Tank Meetings will be held between June 15-July 3.

Please partner with us as we continue the important work of engaging Reform Jewish teens.
