MVP Monday: This I Believe

The sole reason I love NFTY is because it is changes lives. NFTY is my favorite program I have taken part in because of the people who are willing to go farther, think deeper, and feel more.

It was time for chuggim, or electives, so I looked at the Expo board in the dining hall and at the top of the list was a very intriguing choice called: “If you had the attention of the URJ President…” I hurried over because, initially, I thought Rabbi Rick Jacobs was leading the chug. To my slight dismay, I only found a few camp participants and […]

Giving the Gift of NFTY-NAR: Opening Our Doors to More Jewish Teens

When I boarded the bus to this past NFTY NAR Spring Kallah, I noticed a group of five or so new members chatting quietly towards the back of the bus. These freshman and sophomores already knew each other and decided to try out NFTY together. As I approached, their conversation fell silent.
