NFTY-STR Host Family Application - LLTI
We are asking you to participate in this wonderful weekend by hosting members of NFTY-Southern Tropical in your home. The responsibilities of hosting teens will include:
*Providing space for these teens to sleep in your home (they will bring sleeping bags and pillows) on Friday and Saturday night, BEDS are not necessary.
*Driving “your” NFTY-STR members to and from events taking place at the host Temple. Drivers must be at least 21 years old.
*Providing breakfast and dinner on Saturday as well as snacks (all other meals will be provided as part of the events of the weekend).
Housing NFTY-STR teens is an extremely important part of making the weekend a success. Families have a great time hosting NFTYites and it is fun for your children (of all ages) to get to know these Jewish teens as well.
If you have questions, feel free to reach out to Director of Youth Engagement for NFTY-Southern Tropical, Julie Marsh at JMarsh@urj.org or Your application will be reviewed by the host Clergy and NFTY staff, who will be in touch with more detailed information.
