Shalom and welcome to NFTY's Mid-Atlantic Region! NFTY-MAR brings together Reform Jewish Teens from North Carolina, eastern West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, Delaware and far-eastern Tennessee. Our members come together at many times during the year for learning, fun, worship, community service, and fellowship to help young Jewish adults throughout the region build and strengthen lifetime ties with each other and Reform Judaism.

Winter Kallah 2014 Weather Watch
The health and safety of our participants and staff are our utmost priority, and with that in mind, we keep a close eye on not only the weather forecast, but also the road conditions and infrastructures of the buildings we plan to use. The winter in the Mid Atlantic region can have unpredictable weather, and between the snow, the poor road conditions, and the lack of effective plowing in North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland, we're prone to delays. In the days leading up to the event, you'll be able to come here for up-to-date information, in addition to receiving emails and phone calls in the event that there are any significant changes.

We monitor the weather at www.weather.com, www.accuweather.com, and www.weather.gov, as well as pay attention to local and national news reports. We're also in close communication with our bus company, THG Transport, our hosting congregation, Temple Emanuel of Kensington, and our temple youth group (TYG) advisors on the ground in our cities. 

As the event gets closer, please check back here for updates!

If you have questions or concerns about the weather leading up to the event, please DO NOT CONTACT US DIRECTLY, but rather return to check this website, our Facebook (www.facebook.com/nftymar) or Twitter handles (@NFTYMAR), or be in touch with your local temple advisor. If there are any changes to our schedule, we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. We want to make sure our phone and email lines are clear in the event that we do need to communicate important information to the entire group. Thank you!

How I Brought EIE Home

NFTY » NFTY-MAR   |   Apr 10, 2014 12:00 AM
The spring semester of my sophomore year of high school, I went on NFTY-EIE High School in Israel. I initially found out about the program through a friend of mine in my temple youth group (TYG) who had gone the previous year. After learning more, I was enthralled!
