NFTY is a Movement that builds strong, welcoming, inspired communities through teen-powered engagement. Together, we pursue tikkun olam, personal growth, youth empowerment, and deep connections, all rooted in Reform Judaism.
The Texas-Oklahoma region of NFTY serves Jewish Teens in Texas (except for El Paso) and Oklahoma. We work in partnership with Union for Reform Judaism affiliated congregations to provide meaningful Jewish experiences for middle and high school students.
As a NFTYite, you have the opportunity the connect with Reform Jewish teens from across both the Texas-Oklahoma Region as well as all of North America. Whether you have a passion for Jewish learning, social action, theater, sports or all of the above, NFTY can serve as an outlet for you to express your creativity and become a leader in a fun and thought-provoking atmosphere. As a part of the Texas-Oklahoma Region, you can create your own NFTY experience, catered towards your interests and skillset. We hope you take advantage of all that we have to offer and we look forward to seeing you at our next event!
We are part of the family of Union for Reform Judaism camps and youth programs. URJ Youth provides young people with immersive Jewish experiences in North America, and around the world, including camps, Israel trips and social action/service learning travel programs.
Our Movement was founded as the youth arm of Reform Judaism in 1939 at the urging of Women of Reform Judaism (then known as the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods).
With over 900 congregations and 1.5 million Jews, Reform Judaism is the largest and most vibrant Jewish movement in all of North America.
