NFTY-SAR: Never Forget These Years

How can you sum up all the feelings that you have about NFTY? I find that to be an impossible task. To put four years of experiences into a 90 second speech was something I knew I could not do. Each year, I would watch the seniors at Spring Kallah as they would give their final senior speeches, most of the time not being able to get their words out because they were crying so hard.

NFTY SOCAL D’var Torah: Knowing Whom We Stand Before

“Leadership.” This word, the theme of our weekend together, has been tossed around a lot lately.
