Thank you for hosting a NFTYx event and building our network of Reform teen experiences across North America!

 

To create your NFTYx event registration:

  1. Registration Site: You can create your registration in any platform you choose. Wufoo is a common platform and you can also set up to take payments if you are charging for the event.  You may also use your congregation’s registration platform, or any other platform that is easy for your community.
  2. Data to Ask For: At a minimum, please ask for the information listed below. This is the information you will send to the URJ following your event so that we can upload the information into our database and invite participants to the next NFTY event in your region.
  3. Release Statements: Ask families to sign the three release statements below (you can add these into other release statements you have in your registration if you choose).
  4. B’rit Kehillah: Ask parents and teens to sign the NFTY B’rit Kehilah – Code of Conduct
  5. Sample Registration: To view sample registrations and other information you may want to collect for your event, please visit our NFTYx resources.
  6. Add to the Regional Calendar: When your registration is ready to open, please add your event to the regional calendar by filling out this form.  Once you complete the form your event will appear on our regional calendar and will be included in our monthly email to teens, parents, and synagogue professionals!

Following your event, we ask that you share the excel file with the information below.

Once we receive the data we will add the teens to our regional mailing list so they receive monthly emails with the next events and opportunities in the region.   Thank you for helping us build the NFTYx network in your community!

Note to NFTYx Event Planners

  • In most cases, we disclose to clergy if a teen from their congregation has had a serious b’rit infraction at camp or NFTY program so that they may support the teen and make appropriate choices for their community and the family.   A NFTYx host congregation is free to share the list of registered teens with synagogue clergy to ask for any guidance on the participants from their community. 
  • To honor the confidentiality of the teen, we are unable to share if a teen has had a b’rit infraction with a congregation hosting a NFTYx event.   We suggest that congregations include the following text and question in their registration.

I certify that there is nothing preventing me from participating in URJ youth program including NFTY and camp and that I have not been dismissed or asked to leave a URJ youth program due to any type of inappropriate conduct.

If you are unable to make this certification, you must discuss with event leader in order to be granted permission to attend the event.   Part of t’shuvah is being able to acknowledge your mistakes and commit to appropriate behavior.   If you have something to disclose, check the box below and the event leader will contact you.
