Countdown to NFTY Convention 2015: How NFTY Inspired My Daughter

As every parent knows, when your child’s heart is bursting for joy, yours is, too. When your child’s heart is bursting for joy in anticipation before an event occurs, you’ve scored a gold mine. We’re at the “gold mine” level right now, as our daughter Shelby counts down to the upcoming NFTY Convention 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia! As I write this, the convention is just under four months away.

NFTY-PAR: Going out on a Limb

I saw in full action at Fall Kallah. I witnessed emerging leaders in the region try new ways to engage their peers, new ways to quiet a room, new ways to teach an old lesson, and much more. Some of these new methods worked amazingly, and some of them failed. But every time something new occurred it was due to a brave leader going out on a limb and trying it. That, right there, is the magic.

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?

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!
