NoFTY Conclave

For those who were in NoFTY in the '60s and '70s

March 8-10, 2019


Now they call it NFTY/NO, but we remember it as the Northern Federation of Temple Youth. If you were there in the 1960s and 1970s, join us for a trip down memory lane.  Celebrate Shabbat and rediscover OSRUI.  In addition, we'll have passionate discussions, beautiful services, an evening performance by talented NoFTY alums and a weekend of great memories and friends.  Tuition includes lodging, meals, and all programming.

Check-in will begin at 4 pm Friday, and the weekend will end about 11:30 am on Sunday.
