For 75 YEARS NFTY has been inspiring Reform Jewish teen leaders and providing fun, social and educational programming. We are very excited to announce that NFTY is creating exciting new programming for 6th-8th graders and welcoming Middle Schoolers to the NFTY community!

What does this mean for us here at TKE? First, it means that in addition to Hatikvah Kallah, which – this year - was expanded to include 6th graders for the first time; there will be a Regional ski trip, just for them!
