New Opportunity for Teens: Israel Engagement Committee

The 2016 race for the United States Presidency has been unlike any other in recent memory. From reproductive rights to minimum wage to the Keystone Pipeline, candidates are taking divisive stances on a wide range of topics. As seen through NFTY's Voice Your Choice Campaign, it is essential for us to be engaged and informed on the issues that are important to ourselves and our Jewish communities. One such issue that directly impacts the American Jewish population is the relationship between Israel and the United States.
