NFTY teensPittsburgh hosts national social-action weekend for teens
National gathering of teens from Reform Movement comes back to Pittsburgh
The social action-themed weekend is hosted in a different synagogue each year. It has been almost a decade since it had been in Pittsburgh.
Rodef Shalom Congregation welcomed more than 100 teens from across Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, Delaware and parts of West Virginia as the host of the North American Federation of Temple Youth — Pennsylvania Area Region: Winter Institute (NFTY-PAR WINSTY) Jan. 12 to Jan. 14.
“WINSTY” is a gathering of teens from the Reform Movement for a social action-themed weekend and is the only synagogue hosted event. Each year a different synagogue is chosen to host. It has been almost a decade since WINSTY was held in Pittsburgh, and Rodef Shalom’s Teen Board was hands-on throughout the entire planning process.
