NFTY Convention is Here!

The sun is shining on the Pacific Ocean, palm trees are swaying in the wind, and close to 900 ecstatic teens are packing their bags to head to Los Angeles from all over the world. The Reform Movement is rolling out the red carpet to welcome them to Hollywood. The 2013 NFTY Convention is finally here, running concurrently with our Youth Engagement Conference for educators, clergy, and others who work with Jewish youth.

NFTY Convention is where Reform Jewish teens gather to learn, pray, share ideas, dance and sing, hear from inspiring guest speakers, and present their vision and priorities to the world. This year’s convention is shaping up to be one of the most exciting yet. Our teenage participants are about to embark on an amazing five-day journey of creativity, spirituality, and fun – and this year you can join them! Invite parents, friends, congregants and others to join you in the virtual NFTY Convention experience! Here’s how:
