“NFTY NEL is literally the definition of fun. I met some of my best friends here […] I know that they will be my friends for the rest of my life.”

“NFTY NEL changed what it means for me to be jewish. It made jewish learning fun, which I honestly never thought would be possible.”

“NEL is my home away from home. I have friends from all over the place now! I always look forward to seeing everyone that lives far away at events.”

“Running for NFTY NEL board was the best thing that I ever did. It gave me confidence in my leadership abilities and such important skills that I will remember for the rest of my life.”

“I love NEL. I love hosting people, and getting closer with other Jewish teens. It’s hard sometimes to meet Jewish people your age, but NEL brought me that community.”
