Kutz Camp Teen Activists Lobby NY State Legislators to Support GENDA

The teen activists of the URJ Kutz Camp, who participated in Alison Stamm's Political Advocacy minor last week, created these slideshows as a way to lobby NY State Legislators on the issue of transgender rights.

An Open Letter to Mr. Azoulay

An Open Letter to Mr. Azoulay

Dear Mr. Azoulay - Your statement regarding the legitimacy of Reform Jews was deplorable and has widespread negative consequences for World Progressive Jewry, a movement of which we are proud to be members, as well as the greater global Jewish community. We are saddened that someone representing our homeland would propagate ideas that we are illegitimate as Jews and unworthy of our own religious beliefs.

NFTY Passes Gender Inclusive Resolution

NFTY Passes Gender Inclusive Resolution

On Sunday, the leaders came together for the biannual general assembly, Asefah, where the representatives from the 19 regions listened to regional reports and voted on critical legislation. One resolution on the table was a “Resolution Regarding Preferred Gender Pronouns on Nametags” which resolved that “at any NFTY North American event, participants will be given the opportunity to include their preferred pronouns on their nametags, and… are encouraged to introduce themselves with their preferred gender pronouns.” The resolution passed and will help ensure the full inclusion of teens, regardless of their gender identities, during NFTY North American events.

NFTY-SW: Not Your Typical Israel Trip

23 September 2014

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.
