NFTY-SAVP: Thank You NFTY-SAR

First and foremost, thank you for showing me some true southern hospitality. I had a truly special weekend attending your Fall Kallah at Congregation Dor Tamid in Duluth, Georgia. Not only did I have the honor of going to the NFTY event, I had the amazing opportunity to learn and visit the school that Camp Jenny partners with.

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.

NFTY-SO: Bringing the Holy Home – NFTY Southern’s Social Action Day

At NFTY Southern Institute, teens worked together to define what makes NFTY Southern a kehillah kedoshah, a holy community. To wrap up the weekend, we sent them with the charge of “bringing the holy home” – taking the holiness that they create in our NFTY regional community, and sharing it with the communities they are a part of. In our first Regional Social Action Day, they did just that. Thank you to Emma Figarsky, 10th grade from Little Rock, and Benny Meltzer, 11th grade from Baton Rouge, for sharing their insight and reflections on this experience!

The Ideology of Netzer Veida

17 January 2014

“It’s only been three days and we’re already such good friends!” I’ve heard NFTYites make this excited claim at the end of almost every NFTY event I’ve been to for the past five years and Netzer Veida Olamit is no different.

NFTY-SO: My First Biennial (and first flight!)

23 December 2013

"I can't wait!" and "I'm so excited!" were all I could think before Biennial. This would be a weekend of firsts - my first Biennial, my first flight, and my first time meeting anyone attending, as I was the only NFTYite from the Southern region attending.

NFTY-PAR: Why We’re Different

17 December 2013

When was the last time you told someone how you feel about them? Not someone you’re close with, but someone who made an impact on you, without them even knowing. For me, it’s been a while. But why?
