Why I decided to shave my head

Recently, I combined my two favorite things, community and social action. It started because of an 8 year old who was diagnosed with Leukemia (AML) in 2012, Sammy Sommer. The Jewish community rallied together to help however they could.

Nashir: NFTY's Teen Songleading Institute is not your typical NFTY event. We don’t have programs on social action or world issues - It’s simply a bunch of teens that want to learn more about songleading
