Living NFTY

For years, NFTY has published resources under the Living NFTY banner to promote awareness and support issues that are relevant to teens and the adults who work with teens. This ongoing lifestyles initiative is created as a partnership between NFTY staff, NFTY participants and our valued partner organizations.

Below, find all of our Living NFTY initiatives and many other resources NFTYites use to truly Live NFTY.


Living NFTY Initiatives

NFTY has published a series of resources under the Living NFTY banner to promote awareness and support issues that are relevant to teens and adults. This section includes resources on GLBTQ inclusion, eating disorders, bullying/harassment, grief and mourning, and the safe driving pledge.
Israel

Since NFTY's founding in 1939, Israel has been in the hearts and minds of its teen participants. Throughout our history - whether it be creating programs, rallying, making donations or taking hundreds of teens to Israel each year - NFTY has stood by Israel. Learn more about Israel and become active in the community.
Disaster Relief

NFTY values the principle of Tikkun Olam and we join with the Reform Jewish community in responding when disasters occur around the world. From the Haiti earthquake and Hurricane Katrina relief, Darfur advocacy and September 11th remembrance to promoting worthy causes like Nothing but Nets, NFTY is always ready to respond to disasters around the world.

 
Action Theme
Each year, NFTY’s General Board - comprised of elected officers from every region - adopts an Action Theme. This theme, typically a current issue in the world, serves as a blueprint for the year’s social action activities and determines the direction of much of the year’s programming and action.
Study Theme
Every year, NFTY selects a Study Theme for its Temple Youth Groups (TYGs) and Regions. The NFTY Study Theme is a topic on Jewish religion and culture that is to be studied in depth over the course of the year.
