How Can We Redefine Leadership?

NFTY is made up of over 7,000 Jewish teens from across North America. In each of the 19 regions, there is a wide range of teens who serve on their regional board. Each has something special to add to their position, and each recognizes their role as a leader. However, what about the other teens in our movement?

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. Directly between these two extremes, life and death, God or the writers of the Torah decide to throw in some good old ritual law, a b’nei mitzvah student or NFTY President’s favorite treat.
