NFTY’s heart and soul is the local Union for Reform Judaism affiliated synagogue Temple Youth Group (TYG). While each local TYG differs in organization, focus, size, and character, the Temple Youth Group is one outlet for the highly engaged Reform Jewish teenager in a Union Synagogue. While some TYGs only meet 5 times a year for social programs, other TYG’s meet over 20 times each school year and offer a full variety of social, leadership, educational, and social action programs.

NFTY-NAR is comprised of over 75 Reform Congregations throughout the New York Area, including Long Island, New York City, Westchester County, NY & Fairfield County, CT. Many of our congregations have Temple Youth Groups that are active in our region. Feel free to take a moment to meet some of our TYGs! We've divided them by Sub-Region for your convenience.
