The following is a transcript of a speech delivered during Saturday morning services by Zak Kadish, NFTY Ohio Valley Programming Vice President, at NFTY Mechina last week.
356 days ago, the lives of my brother Ethan Kadish, my family, and myself were changed forever by a freak weather incident, a bolt out of the blue. When my brother was struck by lightning, our entire world was shattered, replaced by an impermeable darkness and fear for the future.

How NFTY Convention Changed Me

By Marlana Fireman, NFTY-OV Religious & Cultural Vice President I recently embarked on the trip of a lifetime. As cliche as it sounds, it’s true. I woke up at 5:15am on a Friday and sped off into the night to the Port Columbus International Airport to begin my journey to Los Angeles, California for NFTY Convention 2013. I joined about 900 reform Jewish teens from around the world as well as about 300 staff members on an adventure that surely changed my life.
