NFTY-NAR: We Made Services for the Community at NFTY-NAR’s Fall Kallah

And I left them with a message, for that service, for that Kallah, and for their life: despite your tears and your sympathy, do not let these stories let you lose hope. This community around you will enable you to make a difference. If you have a vision for what you want to change in the world, use a community.

L’Taken: Justice for All

Everyday I go to school and say the Pledge of Allegiance. Every time I say it the last 3 words stick out to me the most. Those three words are “justice for all”.

Are they lacking in their educations because they actually cannot learn or because they are placed in schools where the teachers are not willing to teach the students the way they need to be taught. How is it justice when 29.2% of the disabled people live in poverty because of their lack of education?

My name is Ethan Stone, I am the President of NFTY Missouri Valley, and while I write to represent NFTY Missouri Valley, the views expressed here are my own. I just now got off the “Unpacking Race Relations in the United States” webinar run by NFTY. I had the pleasure of hearing the familiar voices of NFTY Staff and special guests Rabbi Randy Fleisher, a rabbi from Central Reform Congregation in Greater St. Louis; and Zoey Fleisher, Rabbi Fleisher’s daughter, co-President of Central Reform Congregation’s youth group CRFTY, and a good friend of mine. Topics that were discussed included the events in Ferguson and Staten Island and the worldwide repercussions of those events, the meaning of privilege and the applications of that knowledge in our daily lives, and different forms of racism.
