Shalom and welcome to NFTY's Southern Tropical Region! NFTY-STR brings together Reform Jewish Teens from central Florida to the Keys. 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.

MVP Monday: Walking Through the Door

It can be hard to step away from a group of friends and welcome a new member in, but it’s something that is inspiring to everyone. At some point or another, we all felt like we were “lost” at a NFTY event, but we also all had that one person invite us to sit with them at dinner, be their partner for a mixer, or anything in between. After the participants are brought in by that one person, they will continue the same tradition in the future, which is something that is vital to the growth and success of NFTY.


This past weekend was packed with NFTY festivities, from NFTY-SW and STR Fall Kallah, CAR Kickoff, and Na'aseh V'Nishmah! Check out just some of the incredible things that went down!

NFTY-STR: Ice Cubes and Rocks

This past Wednesday, September 3, SchZFTY (Congregation Schaarai Zedek's temple youth group) hosted their first open house, a forum for our teens to simply hang out and get to know one another on a much more personal level. As decided by our youth advisor, Lindsey Morgan, and myself, at each open house of the 2014-2015 year, SchZFTYites will have the unique opportunity to participate in a 30 to 45 minute program addressing a social action theme correlating to either NFTY-STR SAVP (Social Action Vice President) Noah Baker's Monthly Mitzvah Theme, or a congregation-wide tzedakah theme. As SchZFTY's SAVP, one of my responsibilities is to collaborate with Lindsey and our programming team to write and conduct these programs.
