Writing D'vrei Torah
Reform Judaism has always been committed to creative worship and Jewish learning, mixing tradition and expression to form meaningful Jewish experiences. NFTY has long been at the forefront of creative worship and informal Jewish education.

This section is intended to help NFTYites produce and enhance creative worship experiences while working within certain boundaries of the Jewish tradition. It is important to remember that worship experiences cannot be confined to praying in a temple. Worship can occur during a service, outside alone in the woods, holding hands with a friend or listening to music. NFTY works to facilitate all kinds of meaningful, interactive exerperiences that allow NFTYites to explore worship. 

This section also provides resources to help bring Jewish content to TYG, regional and camp programming - whether it is learning how to write a d'var Torah or take action on issues related to the current situation in Israel.
