AFTA, the Association for Torah Advancement
is a not-for-profit organization committed to preserving Jewish tradition and securing Jewish education for future generations.
An organization that's very alive and prominent in today's society, AFTA is committed to serving the Jewish communities of

vibrant united Jewish community predicated on the principles and practices of Torah living.
It's a mission that we take seriously and work hard to fulfill. We hope you enjoy this site and find it an easy, efficient and
