NFTY in the 1960s was remarkably like NFTY today. Except in those areas where it was different. It was the same because, in most ways, kids are the same. Adolescence is a tumultuous time when kids are suddenly vulnerable and suddenly sexual. They are desperate to know who cares about them. They want to find a place where they belong. They love their parents, but also can’t stand the sight of their parents. They care too much about clothes and body image. They are caught up in a need to fit in, but also a need to rebel.
