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 These Think Tank Meetings will be held between June 15-July 3.
