NFTY678 brings the NFTY experience to middle school youth in grades 6 to 8. Our events are designed especially for this age group, providing participants with age-appropriate activities in a safe, welcoming and caring community of peers.

Most events are held in partnership with our local congregations and led by a team of professionals staff, volunteers and teen mentors. Events are held close to home, and include day and overnight activities.

Some examples of NFTY678 programming include:

  • Pancake Breakfast
  • Indoor Rock Climbing Adventure
  • Mini-Maccabiah (color war)
  • Ice Skating
  • Bowling Challenge
  • Israeli-themed Night
  • Hanukkah Mystery Bus Tour
  • Overnight Retreat at Local Camp
