NFTY-PAR: United Donations

NFTY brings thousands of Jewish teenagers from across the country together. People might ask the significance of NFTY and one might answer, “to form friendships” while another might say, “to learn about Judaism.” It took me a while to realize what made NFTY special to me as an individual.

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?

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.

NFTY-PAR: Inserting Judaism

02 September 2014

Judaism is what brings us together. It is the one thing all kids in NFTY-PAR have in common, no matter how religious one is or what synagogue they belong to.

NFTY-MVP: Coming to a Blog Near You

02 September 2014

All of the greatest organizations, all of the greatest leaders in the world don’t believe in first defining the problem. They believe that they must first understand why they do what they do.
