NFTY-SAR: To Inclusion and Beyond!

This year, one of NFTY’s Social Action themes is inclusion. NFTY’s policies and outlook are morphing in an effort to accommodate, accept, and involve every Jewish teen in NFTY, as well as promoting inclusion beyond NFTY. With Benjamin eager to attend, NFTY-SAR welcomed Benjamin into our Fall Kallah in November. Benjamin’s parents had no idea that this year’s Social Action would hit so close to home.

NFTY: The Balance of Chukat

The following is a D’var Torah given by NFTY President Debbie Rabinovich on the first day of the summer session at the URJ Kutz Camp. This week’s parsha, Chukat, is filled with contradictions. We just stood at Sinai, completely healthy and whole, and received the Torah, which brings us life. Suddenly we are confronted by the deaths of Miriam and Aaron.
