NFTY Passes Gender Inclusive Resolution

NFTY Passes Gender Inclusive Resolution

On Sunday, the leaders came together for the biannual general assembly, Asefah, where the representatives from the 19 regions listened to regional reports and voted on critical legislation. One resolution on the table was a “Resolution Regarding Preferred Gender Pronouns on Nametags” which resolved that “at any NFTY North American event, participants will be given the opportunity to include their preferred pronouns on their nametags, and… are encouraged to introduce themselves with their preferred gender pronouns.” The resolution passed and will help ensure the full inclusion of teens, regardless of their gender identities, during NFTY North American events.

Freedom to Discriminate is not Freedom: NFTY-OV opposes RFRA in Indiana

28 March 2015

At 10am on Thursday, March 26, Governor Mike Pence of Indiana signed into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA. Based on name alone, this bill sounds like a measure that NFTY would support - after all, religious freedom is the fundamental right that allows us to live and thrive as American Jews, without fear of discrimination. However, Indiana’s newest law has a misleading moniker.

The first thought that most people have when they hear NFTY Convention is “What is that?” NFTY is the North American Federation of Temple Youth.

J Street U, I’m Hearing Two Things

23 March 2015

My name is Debbie. I have the great honor this year to be serving as President of NFTY, the Reform Jewish Youth Movement. One of my favorite things about this role is that I have the opportunity to work with the board and influence how NFTY activates thousands of Jewish teens around issues, including the many facets of Israel .

We have committed to pursuing this- starting with Rabbi Jacobs' promise to ensure that maps with the green line are spread across the movement.
