NFTY Chicago Virtual Events

We know that many in our community are home right now and we know that at a time like this, community is more important than ever.  Coming together – whether by doing activities, learning or just being, is a great way to connect even as we are physically separated. The NFTY Chicago community is coming together to provide programming for teens, as well as the broader community!

Throughout the coming weeks NFTY Chicago will be offering Virtual Programs – activities, conversations, and more – and we hope you will join us! Keep checking back here for updates, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram for continual updates about the programming we are offering.

There are also events sponsored by NFTY North America and other regions. Check out what is happening across North America here.

Reform Jewish Students' Conversation on Racism 
In partnership with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, the Union for Reform Judaism, camps, and NFTY we are creating space to process the entrenched, deadly racism in our country, and what the Reform movement and individual Jews can do to leverage our power to make change. Join us in this virtual space for conversation, which will open the door to future gatherings, learning opportunities, trainings, and activism for students and young adults as we work to become an anti-racist youth movement.
