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.

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?

Workshops varied from teaching about how to turn something negative in your life to a poistive to evaluating what body language means to teaching the value and importance of clear communication. My workshop was about one of the three North American campaigns NFTY is focusing on in the upcoming year.

NFTY-PAR: Inserting Judaism

Judaism is what brings us together. It is the one thing all kids in NFTY-PAR have in common, no matter how religious one is or what synagogue they belong to.
