An important aspect of our programming is our membership with the Union for Reform Judaism's national youth movement; the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY). NFTY is comprised of over 450 youth groups spanning the United States and Canada and are divided into geographical regions.

BAFTY is part of the Southern Tropical Region (NFTY-STR). As a member of NFTY-STR, BAFTY teens have the opportunity to meet other Jewish teens from around the state of Florida when they participate in regional events hosted by Temples in our region. Regional events are called Kallot and are held throughout the school year.
