This unique fall NFTY-NEL event will bring together all of those in their Junior Youth Groups (Grades 7-8) and those in their Temple Youth Groups (Grades 9-12) for the flagship NFTY-NEL event of the year. Using the traditional ‘Mitzvah Corps’ style event. All members of our region will explore what it means to be a Reform Jew and a socially aware member of our community. We learn together, have fun together and most importantly, bond every single person within our region. There will be opening plenaries and then split into different tracks around what people are interested in. Also, we will infuse social action opportunities and a chance for those who are new to our Region to learn about what we stand for, our customs and traditions.
