NFTY-NAR Winter Kallah

January 29 -31, 2016
6:00 pm - 10:00 am

Winter Kallah has been UPGRADED! Come join us at the end of January for what promises to be an event unlike any other! Starting on Friday night in Long Island, we'll come together as a Reform Jewish teen community for Shabbat! Hosted at Temple Sinai in Roslyn Heights, NY, you'll get the opportunity to spend the evening at a host family with your NFTY friends!

We'll start Saturday morning celebrating Shabbat at Temple Sinai before boarding buses and heading to New York City, where we'll spend the afternoon doing meaningful service learning before having dinner and a fun social program in NYC! At the end of the night, we'll spend the night at a hotel in NYC before heading back home on Sunday morning.

With NYC as our playground, Winter Kallah promises to be unique, exciting, and meaningful. Don't miss the chance to create new memories with over 150 other Reform Jewish teens from through the NY Metropolitan area!
