BELY is a member of NFTY Northeast (NFTY-NE). NFTY-NE brings together Reform Jewish Teens from Upstate New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and Montreal, Canada. Our members come together at many times during the year for learning, fun, worship, community service, and fellowship. NFTY-NE helps young Jewish adults build and strengthen lifetime ties with each other and Reform Judaism. NFTY-NE is comprised of nearly 1000 members from 50 active Temple Youth Groups (TYGs) spanning Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Upstate New York and Montreal, Canada. We are one of 19 regions that make up NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), the youth movement of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ - formerly the Union of American Hebrew Congregations).
