Learn more about this exciting new platform, where Reform congregational leaders connect with colleagues and peers who have similar concerns, interests and responsibilities.
Engaging Jewish teens in the 21st century offers a unique set of opportunities and struggles. As Jewish youth professionals and lay leaders, we grapple with how to best engage and support today’s teens, who are also known as change makers, activists, inspired leaders, and most importantly, a variety of unique souls trying to find their way and make a difference. As we tackle this awesome task together, consider expanding your toolbox and joining us at the URJ’s Youth Summit at NFTY Convention 2019.
This is the only conference for Reform youth professionals and lay leaders by Reform youth professionals and lay leaders. Therefore, the Youth Summit is a unique opportunity to learn with and from peers and experts who understand the unique opportunities and challenges facing our field. Plus, it’s all happening under the same roof as NFTY Convention, giving you access to the speakers, moments, and thrills of the ultimate NFTY event alongside your teens.
Still need convincing? Then you should also know that we will learn about and struggle with big ideas, such as innovation and tradition, structure and agency, individualism and communitarianism, and engagement and education. Throughout the Summit, we will use these concepts to consider how to best connect to and engage with today’s Jewish teens in the lifelong journey of Jewish practice and community. We’ll meet with URJ leadership, explore the Dallas metro area, and deepen the year-round relationships that sustain our congregations, camps, and NFTY regions.
