The Balance of Tu B’Av

  Hope Chernak is the Director of Youth and Informal Education at Temple Shaaray Tefila. Today is Tu B’Av.  Did you know that? Tu B’Av it’s one of those Jewish Holidays that not everyone is familiar with since it falls over the summer.  In the past, if Valentine’s Day fell on one of our youth group nights (TaSTY Lounge Night), I would use the opportunity to talk about Tu B’Av with our teens so they had a chance to learn about this summer holiday (even in the dead of the winter!).  I always found it interesting that this holiday comes […]

How Can We Redefine Leadership?

28 July 2014

NFTY is made up of over 7,000 Jewish teens from across North America. In each of the 19 regions, there is a wide range of teens who serve on their regional board. Each has something special to add to their position, and each recognizes their role as a leader. However, what about the other teens in our movement? Why shouldn't they have the opportunity to serve their region, too? These questions came up a lot during my time at the URJ Kutz Camp this summer, where I had the opportunity to learn from almost 80 passionate Regional and Temple Youth Group leaders in the Leadership Academy.

Is your Facebook feed full of mixed facts and opinions on the situation in Israel and Gaza, and you’re not really sure what to think? Take a look at the last week’s Webinar and Q and A session discussing the situation:       A rocket is fired. You have 15 seconds to find shelter. This is the reality right now in Ashkelon, in Ashdod, in Be’er Sheva, Jerusalem, Hebron, Shaar HaNegev. This has been the reality for the last 8 days in Tel Aviv, in Modi’in, and in Gaza City. This is the reality for our brothers and sisters in […]

“If You Had the Attention of the URJ President…”

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. To my slight dismay, I only found a few camp participants and […]
