NFTY-SW Junior Youth Social Action Weekend Event Recap

All of our participants arrived safely and on time and we jumped right in to the evening by meeting the teen and adult leaders. We played a few getting to know you games together and welcomed Shabbat with candle lighting and blessings. We enjoyed Shabbat dinner and then moved into services led by our professional song leader, Rachel Mylan. After dinner, we played more games to get to know each other. By the end of the evening, I could see that this group was already making connections and were happy to be together. After our mixers we experienced our first closing friendship circle and learned the NFTY cheer. Then we headed to our host homes for a good night’s sleep.

NFTY-SW: Not Your Typical Israel Trip

Following graduation, my summer began and went on as normal, but I felt that something was missing. Throughout high school I became very involved in the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY). I had the privilege of being a member of two Southwest regional boards, first as Communications Vice President, and then as President. As my time in NFTY ended, I felt like there was something more for me to do. I knew that I needed to find the next steps in my Jewish life.
