Attention all 9th through 12th graders!

 Come one, come all, to the 2017 NFTY-CAR Kickoff Event!

Join your fellow BeTTY members and the rest of NFTY-CAR at the first NFTY-CAR event of the 2017-2018 school year, as you do karaoke/a lipsynch battle, play fruitball (try to break a world record - there's something for everyone), meet new people from across the Chicagoland area and see your friends after a summer apart, eat a delicious lunch and dessert from a food truck, and experience a taste of NFTY, whether this is your first or 100th event!

This event will be held at the Bernard Weinger JCC in Northbrook. 

More information can be found by clicking HERE.

This event is open to any Jewish teen in grades 9 to 12.

At this point, registration has CLOSED, and any other potential participant registrations, must be approved by NFTY-CAR Regional Director, Logan Zinman.

What's great fun, gathers high school friends from more that eight neighboring high schools, and has plenty of room for you?

BeTTY (Beth Tikvah Temple Youth) and they can't wait to welcome you! Ninth through twelfth grade members join together for fun, food, great friendships, social action service to the community, and the right mix of song and spiritual connection. TWEENS is for grades 6-8.
