5 Things I Saw In Israel During Elections

This past week I took an amazing family trip to Israel. We started in the north and travelled around the country for about 9 days. Our trip happened to fall on Israel’s federal elections. It was an interesting time to be in Israel, and these are a few things my family and I experienced while we were there.

NFTY-CWR: Special Report – NFTY Convention

The first thought that most people have when they hear NFTY Convention is “What is that?” NFTY is the North American Federation of Temple Youth. In February, NFTY held its bi- annual convention in Atlanta, Georgia with 1,000 teens and 300 staff members, or youth professionals, in attendance. The theme “Myself, My Community and My World” was the perfect definition of everything that we were about to explore in our journey throughout the weekend.

“Leadership.” This word, the theme of our weekend together, has been tossed around a lot lately. But more often than not, we talk about leadership as some big, vague concept and rarely actually talk about the meaning behind it. One of my favorite Jewish teachings talks a little bit about the meaning of leadership:

NFTY-NAR: Bridging the Gap for 2020 – The Road to Fivefold Growth

25 March 2015

There’s a hidden gem in the NYC metro area. Some 400 teens are a part of it; they call it home. No, it’s not a secret society...It’s something that members talk about in every conversation they can.

J Street U, I’m Hearing Two Things

23 March 2015

My name is Debbie. I have the great honor this year to be serving as President of NFTY, the Reform Jewish Youth Movement. One of my favorite things about this role is that I have the opportunity to work with the board and influence how NFTY activates thousands of Jewish teens around issues, including the many facets of Israel .

09 March 2015

I also noticed how welcome everyone felt being able to express themselves freely. This fact was very important to me when I attempted to come up with a resolution for Asefah.
