Thank You for Being My Brother’s Keeper

The following is a transcript of a speech delivered during Saturday morning services by Zak Kadish, NFTY Ohio Valley Programming Vice President, at NFTY Mechina last week. 356 days ago, the lives of my brother Ethan Kadish, my family, and myself were changed forever by a freak weather incident, a bolt out of the blue. When my brother was struck by lightning, our entire world was shattered, replaced by an impermeable darkness and fear for the future.

Respect and Learning Central to Understanding Challenges in Israel

As we discuss our perspectives on this difficult topic, it is important that we remember the Talmudic lesson of Eruvin 13b.

10 July 2014

By Matt Mandel, NFTY-NAR New York City Membership Vice President 2014-2015 A few days ago I was going about a regular day during my first week at the Union for Reform Judaism’s Kutz Camp. It was time for chuggim, or electives, so I looked at the Expo board in the dining hall and at the top of the list was a very intriguing choice called: “If you had the attention of the URJ President…” I hurried over because, initially, I thought Rabbi Rick Jacobs was leading the chug.
