As you may have seen in your American Government textbooks, democracy is a “government by the people, both directly or indirectly, with free and frequent elections.” Therefore, democracies only function when the citizens of democratic nations become educated and involved in their political processes.

NFTY-PAR: The Impact Youth Group Makes on a Congregation

05 February 2015

I would not be here were it not for NFTY. My guess is that, for many of us, that’s true. Our youth group has recently rebuilt itself through the hard efforts and commitment of several teens, like Jason Kramer, Ariel Friedlander, and Abby Kamen, and our talented advisor Avi Remetz. It would be easy to say, “my kids did that and are grown—it’s not for me.” or “my kids aren’t old enough yet”, but I would ask you to see our Youth Group as an essential aspect of the congregation, and to support it. For in doing so, you support our future as a congregation. L’dor Vador Nagid Godlecha: From generation to generation, we will tell of Your greatness. L’dor vador—in every generation, may WE protect this chain.
