• Finding my Connection to Israel

    Every time I have a chance to run a program or write a piece for NFTY, my mind immediately jumps to Israel. Not because I want all people to fully support Israel(I don’t always), nor tell people the simple stuff, like whether or not you should get fries on your falafel (which you definitely should)

As URJ Youth's signature year-round program, more than 8,000 6th through 12th graders participate in NFTY programs that teach compassion, fight injustice, engage with Israel, and build community. NFTY is the safe, home-away-from-home that inspires our teens to become their best selves and empowers them to change the world.
