NFTY and OATY are all about the teen engagement! Our voices are actually listened to by our peers and the adults and rabbis that work with us. If I had to describe NFTY and OATY in a few simple words, I would say: friendship, family, and love.
So – before saying “Nah, why would I want to be part of OATY?” – remember these words. I don’t regret joining in 8th grade. Don’t make a mistake and miss out… please join OATY!

Being a member of OATY also offers opportunities for
- developing your leadership skills as an OATY board member
- learning about fundraising (through our bake sales and coffee house)
- and community service (like when we work together to clean up Evergreen Cemetery)
