NFTY-PAR: Hag/Mac 2015… My First Event as a Regional Board Member

By Mikey Pliskin, NFTY-PAR PVP From May 15-17, NFTY-PAR had our first event of the year called Haggigah/Maccabiah, or Hag/Mac. It was open to 8th-11th graders and was at Camp Harlam. This event was my first as a Regional Board member, which means I planned this event with the rest of the NFTY-PAR Regional Board from start to finish, and ran the whole thing. This experience was so fun and amazing, and I loved every minute. Experiencing this event as a Regional Board member, instead of a participant, was so unique and special. Hag/Mac is my favorite event of the year […]

June 3 is Worldwide Unity Day: Promoting the Jewish People as One

June 12, 2014 is remembered to many as the day that three Israeli boys, Gilad Shaar, Naftali Fraenkel, and Eyal Yifrach, were kidnapped from a bus stop in Gush Etzion. It was a grim day, one that would prove to be a catalyst for the violent events that would occur later in the summer, culminating in what became known as the 50-Day War. As horrible as that day might have been, for me, it was also the day I stepped off a plane, boarded a bus, and tested my feet in the water of the Mediterranean Ocean as I watched my first Israeli sunrise from a beach near Tel Aviv.

Unfortunately, gun violence enters our lives when we least expect it. As a movement based off the principle of tzedek, or justice, it is not enough for us to only recognize what is happening. It is our duty as NFTYites, as Jews, and as people to ensure gun violence is no longer part of our culture. There are many measures we can take towards raising awareness to gun violence prevention, but we need your help to make it happen.

NFTY-PAR: Operation Inclusion

05 September 2014

During Summer Leadership Kallah, participants were able to sign up for two sessions of board workshops. Workshops varied from teaching about how to turn something negative in your life to a poistive to evaluating what body language means to teaching the value and importance of clear communication. My workshop was about one of the three North American campaigns NFTY is focusing on in the upcoming year. These campaigns include discussing LGBTQIA rights, taking a stand on gun violence, and, NFTY’s guide to inclusion.

NFTY-President: What Can Legislation Do For Us?

04 September 2014

Open any newspaper. Immigration is a “crisis” that is nowhere near being resolved. We see other crises boiling at home and abroad, from Ferguson to Damascus to Jerusalem to Gaza. If we use the connections we have to multiply our influence, we will become what we always say we are. We will be a movement.

NFTY-PAR: Starting From the Bottom

03 September 2014

Just over a week ago NFTY-PAR’s Summer Leadership Kallah, affectionately called SLK (slick), occurred at URJ Camp Harlam. The PAR Board was extremely excited for the four-day event centered around building our future leaders in PAR. We had crafted an event that was unlike one PAR had ever seen and to say we were anxious about whether it would be a hit or not would be an understatement.
