A Letter to My Charleston & NFTY Communities

A Letter to My Charleston & NFTY Communities

Two nights ago I had just walked away from a group of fellow staff members to head to bed at the URJ Kutz camp when surprisingly, considering my lack of service in Warwick, a notification popped up on my phone. It was a CNN snippet describing a shooting in Charleston, South Carolina with 9 fatalities. I paused for a second and read it again; shooting in Charleston, South Carolina. A cute, boutique ridden town, swarming with tourists, filled with history, the holy city, and my home town. A shooting in my town.

NFTY supports the Charleston Community

This week, NFTY’s network of Social Action Vice Presidents, from around the country and Canada, convened in Washington, D.C. to learn about action, advocacy and education in relationship to the Religious Action Center’s work and the social justice work these teens will undertake in the coming year. It never occurred to anyone that these teens might learn about Gun Violence Prevention one day, and wake up the next to hear about the mass shooting in Charleston, SC at Emanuel AME Church.

June 3 is Worldwide Unity Day: Promoting the Jewish People as One

June 3 is Worldwide Unity Day: Promoting the Jewish People as One

June 12, 2014 is remembered to many as the day that three Israeli boys, Gilad Shaar, Naftali Fraenkel, and Eyal Yifrach, were kidnapped from a bus stop in Gush Etzion. It was a grim day, one that would prove to be a catalyst for the violent events that would occur later in the summer, culminating in what became known as the 50-Day War. As horrible as that day might have been, for me, it was also the day I stepped off a plane, boarded a bus, and tested my feet in the water of the Mediterranean Ocean as I watched my first Israeli sunrise from a beach near Tel Aviv.

J Street

J Street U, I’m Hearing Two Things

My name is Debbie. I have the great honor this year to be serving as President of NFTY, the Reform Jewish Youth Movement. One of my favorite things about this role is that I have the opportunity to work with the board and influence how NFTY activates thousands of Jewish teens around issues, including the many facets of Israel . We have seen this year that NFTY has to do a better job of preparing teens to enter college with a deeper understanding of Israel, Israelis and her neighbors. We have committed to pursuing this- starting with Rabbi Jacobs’ promise to ensure that maps with the green line are spread across the movement.
