Consultation on Conscience: Making the Ask

Hello my name is Sam Dorow and I’m the Social Action Vice President, serving and elect, from NFTY GER.

MVP Monday: The NFTY Experience

I am so grateful that I was given the opportunity to find out about NFTY my freshman year. As a past MVP, and current Central Recruitment VP, it is so important to realize that everyone comes to NFTY for different reasons. Yet, people stay because of those people who reach out and go the extra mile to befriend a new member.
