Friday, January 17 - Monday, January 20, 2020

NFTY SOCAL & NFTY CWR are excited to present Winter Kallah! Join us as we bring together two NFTY regions, in celebration of the power of community. The weekend will be filled to the brim with NFTY fun! Winter Kallah will be held at Camp Mountain Chai (Alpine Retreat Center) in Southern California!

What can my teen expect from the weekend? 

Teens from NFTY SOCAL & NFTY CWR can expect a traditional weekend of NFTY fun, beginning with Friday night programming and Shabbat services. Friday night programming will be hosted in collaboration with the NFTY SOCAL & NFTY CWR regional boards, along with teen leaders from both regions. Our NFTY programming and mixers will continue on Saturday, starting with Shabbat services and ending with Havdallah. Sunday will be another incredible day of teen-led programming, including our Winter Kallah Maccabiah, and ending in a “BIG FUN” experience. Teens will depart from Camp Mountain Chai Alpine Retreat Center on Monday morning, following closing circle.
