NFTY-SAVP: Thank You NFTY-SAR

First and foremost, thank you for showing me some true southern hospitality. I had a truly special weekend attending your Fall Kallah at Congregation Dor Tamid in Duluth, Georgia. Not only did I have the honor of going to the NFTY event, I had the amazing opportunity to learn and visit the school that Camp Jenny partners with.

NFTY-PAR: As Jews We Hold On To Hope

Hope can get complicated in our modern world. What are we supposed to hope for? Hope for peace in the Middle East? Hope to get an A on our math test? Hope that this D’var is over soon? I can’t answer those questions for you. We all hope for different things. What I do hope is that we can all strive to follow the Golden Rule “do not unto others as you would have them do unto you”. No matter what types of people we encounter, it is our purpose as Jews to hold onto hope for a better world and mutual understanding among all people.

NFTY-SO: Bringing the Holy Home – NFTY Southern’s Social Action Day

At NFTY Southern Institute, teens worked together to define what makes NFTY Southern a kehillah kedoshah, a holy community. To wrap up the weekend, we sent them with the charge of “bringing the holy home” – taking the holiness that they create in our NFTY regional community, and sharing it with the communities they are a part of. In our first Regional Social Action Day, they did just that. Thank you to Emma Figarsky, 10th grade from Little Rock, and Benny Meltzer, 11th grade from Baton Rouge, for sharing their insight and reflections on this experience!

MVP Monday: Socials and Mixers Gone Wrong

24 November 2014

Believe it or not, not all programs go as planned. In all honesty for MVP’s this is especially true, and for some pretty frequent, when it comes to mixers and socials. I’ve experienced this first hand a couple of times already, and to say the least there’s only so much you can do to prepare. I particularly experienced this at NFTY-OV’s Leadership Training Kallah (LTK).

NFTY-GER: But Where is “Forth”?

20 November 2014

I have no doubt there are pieces of God within each of us that enable us to be kings in our own right. We have strengths and weaknesses beyond our knowledge and the only way to tap into these or overcome them is to recognize our own inherent power, inherited from generations of men and women who too have gone forth and have been good, have been great, but above all, have been Jews.
