NFTY-PAR: My Introduction to ARZA

During NFTY-PAR’s social action oriented event, WINSTY, I learned something new that will now impact my Reform Jewish experience forever. Rabbi Jack Paskoff, the Rabbi at our host synagogue, introduced me to ARZA (ahr-tzah), the Association of Reform Zionists of America—who they are, what they do, and why it is important that we act now to support them. I had never known of this organization, and now I am not only aware of it, but I believe it is my duty to advocate for ARZA, because I believe in Reform Judaism and I believe in Israel being the homeland of all the Jewish people.

NFTY-PAR: Making a Difference with a Small Donation

Being a part of the NFTY-PAR community has affected me in many different ways. I have made life-long friendships, learned many Jewish values, including helping others that are less fortunate. However, the most important part to me is the social action component. Over the weekend of January 16th-18th, WINSTY was held at my temple, Congregation Shaarai Shomayim in Lancaster, PA. Over the weekend PARticipants from all across Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Delaware, helped improve my community while having a fun time with friends. It was inspiring for me to see my fellow PARites learn and grow from projects they participated in throughout the Lancaster community.

NFTY-MV: “Do Not Stand Idly By”

At Winter Chavurah, Regional Board worked with Jonah Freelander, the Assistant Director of Mitzvah Corps, to run a program based on the teaching “Do not stand idly by while your neighbor’s blood is shed.” (Lev. 19:16). The purpose of the program was to allow participants to individually participate in many different station-based experiences derived from the modern social action movement, such as with transgender issues or #blacklivesmatter.

Look around. For every step forward, a privilege is recognized, and for every step back we acknowledge a challenge that not everyone faces that makes our road to success bumpy. The activity we just did represents the privileges that members of NFTY Southern enjoy as a region and as you can see, we are in a very blessed spot when it comes to these everyday opportunities.

NFTY-SAR: To Inclusion and Beyond!

21 January 2015

This year, one of NFTY’s Social Action themes is inclusion. NFTY’s policies and outlook are morphing in an effort to accommodate, accept, and involve every Jewish teen in NFTY, as well as promoting inclusion beyond NFTY. With Benjamin eager to attend, NFTY-SAR welcomed Benjamin into our Fall Kallah in November. Benjamin’s parents had no idea that this year’s Social Action would hit so close to home. They shared their excitement and gratitude NFTY and the incredible strides we’ve taken, take, and hope to take.
