This event is open to any Jewish teen in grades 9 to 12 who is interested in a Reform Jewish experience.

  • Meals are included in the cost of the event.
  • Teens are expected to participate in the entire event. Fees are set at a full package rate and unfortunately we cannot prorate registration.

Please review the tentative bus schedule for Winter Kallah for tentative arrival and departure information. The cost to ride the bus is included in the event fee and you will be asked to choose a stop during registration. If you are interested in arriving and departing from different locations, please contact Logan Zinman at for permission and to ensure there is space on the bus.

Please note the early departure times for the buses. During such a short weekend, it is important to ensure that our buses can arrive on time (before rush hour) so we can maximize our time together. We also have experienced snowy weather and snowstorms on the drive to Winter Kallah in the past, which resulted in very long bus rides after dark. We want to ensure we provide ample time to get the teens to camp in as safe a manner as possible. If you need a letter from NFTY to share with your school for a religious exemption for attendance purposes, please be in touch with Logan Zinman at
