NFTY-GER: 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.”

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.
