Wherever you find Reform Jewish teenagers, you'll also find NFTY! As the youth arm of the Union for Reform Judaism, NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth) brings together teens from over 450 Temple Youth Groups (TYGs) throughout the United States and Canada. These TYGs are in turn divided into 19 regions. NFTY Regional events bring teens together throughout the year for learning, fun, worship, community service and fellowship. Our programs help young Jewish adults to build and strengthen lifetime ties with each other and Reform Judaism.

NFTY was founded in 1939 as the youth arm of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (now Union for Reform Judaism). It was created at the urging of the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods on order to provide an outlet for young people to engage in the life of their synagogues . 

The NFTY regions listed below are all part of the West District. The Missouri Valley region covers parts of the Central District as well.
