Countdown to NFTY Convention 2015: How NFTY Inspired My Daughter

As every parent knows, when your child’s heart is bursting for joy, yours is, too. When your child’s heart is bursting for joy in anticipation before an event occurs, you’ve scored a gold mine.

MVP Monday: Walking Through the Door

It can be hard to step away from a group of friends and welcome a new member in, but it’s something that is inspiring to everyone.

As decided by our youth advisor, Lindsey Morgan, and myself, at each open house of the 2014-2015 year, SchZFTYites will have the unique opportunity to participate in a 30 to 45 minute program addressing a social action theme correlating to either NFTY-STR SAVP (Social Action Vice President) Noah Baker’s Monthly Mitzvah Theme, or a congregation-wide tzedakah theme. As SchZFTY’s SAVP, one of my responsibilities is to collaborate with Lindsey and our programming team to write and conduct these programs.
