NFTY Mechina is from July 22nd-26th at the URJ Kutz Camp in Warwick, New York.
NFTY Mechina gives leaders in NFTY an opportunity to come to NFTY’s home for the summer to learn and progress alongside leaders throughout the 19 regions of NFTY. There will be network times for incoming boards to receive position specific training, along with incubator tracks for regional delegates to receive knowledge to bring back to their home region. This is an opportunity for all of our movement to join together for 5 days to get prepared for the year ahead!
