NFTY-GER: After NFTY Convention, GER Teens Debrief with In-flight Interviews

At the end of any NFTY event, especially on the ride home, NFTY-GER teens are always torn between being super excited after a great few days with their friends, and being completely exhausted from non-stop action and a severe lack of sleep. After NFTY Convention, these feelings are exponentially amplified. As it turns out, even in our state of exhaustion, the plane ride home from NFTY Convention is a great time to get candid, instant feedback from the teens, and even youth professionals. As many NFTY-GER teens and advisors shared a flight home from Atlanta, I took the opportunity to conduct a few “NFTY-GER In-Flight Interviews.”

The Power of Generational Leadership

At NFTY Convention 2015 in Atlanta a couple of weekends ago, I watched with many past NFTY Board members as the 2015-2016 NFTY Board-Elect took the stage for the first time. Suddenly, as we began to sing Josh Nelson’s version of L’dor V’dor, a wave of nostalgia swelled within me and I finally understood the impact of generational leadership – it just happened two years after my time on NFTY Board.

02 May 2014

When I boarded the bus to this past NFTY NAR Spring Kallah, I noticed a group of five or so new members chatting quietly towards the back of the bus. These freshman and sophomores already knew each other and decided to try out NFTY together. As I approached, their conversation fell silent.

NFTY-PAR: Realizing What a Freshmen Means in the Eyes of a NFTYite

29 April 2014

None of the freshmen who attended Spring Kallah had any idea what to expect. Seniors will be leaving PAR, and in the eyes of NFTY, freshmen become sophomores. After Spring it became apparent to me that the event is all about reflecting on what NFTY means to you and emphasizing generational leadership.

NFTY-PAR: Being a Role Model is a Life Changing Experience

29 April 2014

Growing up in PAR, I wanted to become a role model for people younger than me just like the people older were for me. And I was always very nervous that I didn't leave that legacy that I wanted to within the region. But being engaged in PAR has helped me realize what a true role model is and means.

23 April 2014

When I arrived at Elections, I greeted everyone and made sure everyone running was calm and relaxed. Honestly, I probably give my friends running more attention, but I made sure I wished all thirteen candidates good luck.
