NFTY-PAR: Going out on a Limb

I saw in full action at Fall Kallah. I witnessed emerging leaders in the region try new ways to engage their peers, new ways to quiet a room, new ways to teach an old lesson, and much more. Some of these new methods worked amazingly, and some of them failed. But every time something new occurred it was due to a brave leader going out on a limb and trying it. That, right there, is the magic.

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. People feel nostalgic about the places they call home because of the atmospheres created within them. An atmosphere of love and care is one that is welcoming and accepting of everyone who is willing to take the chance of joining in. As the New York City Membership Vice President, I have taken the initiative to tweak my job description. My job is not to recruit members and increase members, but to do what I love to do: meet amazing people, create meaningful relationships with them, and then show them the beautiful world of NFTY.

NFTY-PAR: As Jews We Hold On To Hope

Hope can get complicated in our modern world. What are we supposed to hope for? Hope for peace in the Middle East? Hope to get an A on our math test? Hope that this D’var is over soon? I can’t answer those questions for you. We all hope for different things. What I do hope is that we can all strive to follow the Golden Rule “do not unto others as you would have them do unto you”. No matter what types of people we encounter, it is our purpose as Jews to hold onto hope for a better world and mutual understanding among all people.

MVP Monday: Socials and Mixers Gone Wrong

Believe it or not, not all programs go as planned. In all honesty for MVP’s this is especially true, and for some pretty frequent, when it comes to mixers and socials. I’ve experienced this first hand a couple of times already, and to say the least there’s only so much you can do to prepare. I particularly experienced this at NFTY-OV’s Leadership Training Kallah (LTK).
